Together Housing Group and Esh Construction have applied to Hull City Council for the development of 65 new affordable homes. How will this help meet the local needs of young families and those in need of accessible housing?
The homes will be located on land opposite the Freedom Centre, between Ryhill Grove and Wyton Grove, which is allocated for residential development in the Holderness Road Corridor Area Action Plan.
Part of an £11 million land-led development, the proposals include two, three, and four-bedroom homes for affordable rent.
Collaborations are key to creating much-needed affordable homes
Designed by Acanthus WSM Architects, it is said that the site will include 31 two-bedroom, 28 three-bedroom and six four-bedroom homes. The site will also include private rear gardens and parking facilities.
Zoe Cowell, Business Development Manager at Esh Construction, highlighted that this development is key to building on its collaboration work: “We pride ourselves on maintaining successful working relationships with our clients and we are delighted to be working with Together Housing on a second land-led development.”
An extensive amount of work has gone into developing this scheme to date and I would like to thank everyone who has been involved in getting to this point.
The aim is to support young families by providing the housing they need
Upon completion, the registered housing provider, Together Housing Group will be taking ownership of the properties.
On this, Programme Manager, Chris Watson explained that ensuring that local housing needs are met is a top priority for Together Housing Group.
He said: “This is an exciting opportunity to offer new and current customers, housing right at the heart of Hull.”
Our vision is to create a vibrant community of affordable homes that will meet the local needs including the young and growing families.
20% of the properties will be accessible
Continuing, Chris added that the housing will be not only catering to affordable housing needs but accessible ones too: “Over 20 per cent of the properties will be built with enhanced accessible features including ramp access and ground floor shower rooms.
“By working in conjunction with Esh Construction, we’re proud to invest in the project and help meet the growing demand for housing in the Yorkshire and Humber area.”
Due to the huge demand for new affordable homes across the Yorkshire and Humber region, developments like this one will provide a solution to the people who need it most. Similar developments will also help to support registered providers to achieve their targets.
