A £4 million investment in housing renewal from the Local Growth Fund has been approved by the Humber Local Enterprise Partnership.
Hull City Council confirmed the move in a decision record.
It will allow the local authority to continue a city-wide housing regeneration plan to build up to 1,000 new homes, for sale and affordable rent in established renewal areas.
The plan includes an allocation for frontage improvements at some older privately owned properties in renewal areas. Examples can be seen in the Hawthorne Avenue, Preston Road, St Andrew’s and New Bridge Road areas.
Some of the money will go to the council’s Empty Homes programme and bring up to 100 empty homes back into residential use.
Hull City Council is recognised nationally as a trailblazer in this area, having brought more than 750 homes back into use since 2012.
The development programme offers training opportunities and jobs. All developer partners are committed to providing as many jobs as feasible to local people.
Councillor John Black, portfolio holder for housing, said: “We have a very well-established housing-led regeneration programme incorporating a range of private builders, the community sector and housing associations, with whom we have developed highly successful partnerships.
“Together, we are well-placed to continue transforming the city’s housing market, and following the success of previous development phases, we have a large pipeline of sites both for new build and refurbishment.”
