Hull Council appoints housing developer to kick-start new regeneration schemeHull City Council has appointed Compendium Living as its development partner to build new modern housing within the Ings area of Hull that will create new trade jobs.

Hull City Council and Compendium Living have been working together to develop plans and designs for 770 new quality homes that will transform the Ings focus area into an ‘urban village’ and boost the local economy.

This appointment will allow the Council and Compendium Living to replicate the success of the housing developments created by the Council and its partners in the west of the city.

These are some of the fastest selling developments in the country last year. It is hoped that following planning approval building will begin in summer 2014.

Councillor John Black, Portfolio Holder for Strategic and Operational Housing, said: “We are pleased to announce the appointment of Compendium Living as our Lead Developer Partner for Ings. We look forward to working in partnership with Compendium to develop high quality, modern housing in a much needed area. These are exciting times for the area and it presents a real opportunity for the community to shape the area for generations to come and to be involved in the regeneration.”

Dave Bullock, Managing Director of Compendium Living, said: “We are absolutely delighted to have been appointed by Hull City Council to carry out this very important regeneration project, and now to be starting the detailed work which will lead to the revitalisation of the Ings area of East Hull.

“We believe that the scale and quality of the plans we have devised with the City Council and local people will help transform this part of the city and create a more attractive, safe and popular place to live for all those people who make this their home.”
