Next phase of £100m development in Ings underway

Next phase of £100m development in Ings underway

Work has started on the latest phase of an award-winning £100 million housing development in east Hull.

The 108 new homes which are going up in the Saltshouse Road and Battersea Close area of Ings, are the latest to be built as part of a 15-year regeneration project, which is currently five years in.

The Ings regeneration will see over 700 new homes built in the area for open market sale, shared ownership and affordable rent.

The regeneration project is a partnership between Hull City Council, Compendium Living and Together Housing Group. The project has been supported with £4m from the Government’s Local Growth Fund, secured by the Humber Local Enterprise Partnership and part of the Government’s commitment to the Northern Powerhouse. This builds on £10m Local Growth Fund already invested in Hull’s housing renewal scheme. 

The project is also supported by Homes England, which has granted £495,000 funding for this latest phase.

Over 200 new homes have been built by the partnership in the last five years, which brings the total to over 400 new homes built in the area over the last 10 years.

Together Housing Group will offer 11 of the new homes in the latest phase for affordable rent with the remainder being for open market sale. 

An earlier phase of the development, The Leeway (site 3b), won the Best New Housing Development category at the South Yorkshire & Humberside regional awards last year.

Dave Bullock, Managing Director at Compendium Living said: “We are proud to be involved in the transformation of this community. The Ings developments are not only adding houses to the local community but also contributing in other ways, including providing local jobs and working with local schools and youth projects.”

Hilary Brady, Head of Development at Together Housing Group, added: “As part of our strategic partnership with Compendium Living and Hull City Council, we are committed to the regeneration of east Hull.

“Our shared vision is to transform Ings into an inclusive urban village which will benefit the whole community for generations to come.”

Cllr John Black, Hull City Council Portfolio Holder for Housing and Regeneration, further added: “We have a very well established housing-led regeneration programme incorporating a range of private builders, the community sector and housing associations. The redevelopment of Ings with Together Housing and Compendium Living is an excellent example of these partnerships, and how together we are transforming the city’s housing market and breathing new life into neighbourhoods.”
