The latest phase of a multi-million pound regeneration scheme in Hull is underway as work starts on The Leeway.
Work is beginning on the latest phase of a multi-million pound regeneration of the Ings area of east Hull which is being delivered by developer Compendium Living – a joint venture company set up by Lovell and The Riverside Group – in partnership with Hull City Council.
Lovell will build a £9.3 million development of 68 brand-new family homes, mostly for open market sale featuring 64 new two-, three- and four-bedroom houses for open market sale through Compendium Living, with four bungalows for affordable rent being provided for the Together Housing Group.
“The Leeway 2 forms the latest phase of our strategic long-term partnership with Hull City Council which is transforming the Ings area with modern and attractive new homes,” says Compendium Living managing director Dave Bullock. “Following the successful completion of the first phase of The Leeway, we anticipate our latest homes for sale will become available towards the end of 2017. The development will offer a mix of house styles and sizes with homes perfect for buyers ranging from first-time purchasers to families and downsizers.”
The first homes to be built through the Ings regeneration programme – 65 new homes for rent, shared ownership and outright sale – were completed by Lovell in August 2016. Compendium Living is also creating 83 affordable homes for Together Housing, which make up the second phase of the Ings redevelopment. These homes are under construction by Lovell and expected to be completed by March 2018. Overall, the large-scale redevelopment of the Ings area will create 770 new homes as well as new landscaped public open space.
Lovell regional managing director Robert Adams says: “We are extremely pleased to be continuing to work with our partners at Compendium Living, helping deliver this latest phase of the Ings regeneration. Developed in close consultation with local residents, community groups and stakeholders and the City Council, this project is bringing high-quality new homes, including homes for sale, for rent and for shared ownership to east Hull.”
