Construction work has begun on the next phase of our major regeneration scheme in Hull.  In order to mark this milestone, local councillors and other dignitaries attended site in August to officially “break the ground”.

The Leeway 2 development will provide a total of 68 high quality new homes, ready to meet local housing demand.   The site includes 64 two, three and four bedroom homes for sale on the open market. In addition, four 2-bedroom bungalows are being built for affordable housing provider Together Housing.

It is hoped that the second phase of The Leeway development will prove just as popular as the first. In fact sales interest is already high, a promising sign for this and further phases of development expected over the coming years.

Dave Bullock, Managing Director at Compendium Living said: “It is exciting for us to start work on the next phase of our regeneration project in Ings in this important year for Hull as the UK City of Culture.

“We have been working in partnership with Hull City Council to offer much needed homes in this community. Therefore the Ings developments will eventually provide over 700 new homes, and contribute significantly towards the growth of Hull.

In addition, Councillor John Black, Hull City Council Housing Portfolio Holder for Infrastructure and Housing attended the ground-breaking event.  He said “Compendium Living is progressing well with its development as part of our regeneration project for East Hull.

“It is fantastic that an award winning homebuilder is providing high quality homes in Ings.  This can only help to transform the area and provide economic growth for Hull. We look forward to working on future phases with Compendium Living.”
