Hull City Council has approved plans enabling a landmark church to become a hub for 2017’s UK City of Culture events.

Wednesday’s planning committee approval will allow sufficient time for a £4.5 million upgrade of Holy Trinity Church’s interior and surroundings to go ahead.

This will transform the area into a tourist attraction and events venue, as well as maintaining the church’s position as a centre of worship.

The improvements will see Trinity Square and Holy Trinity’s churchyard merge to create a new public space for the occasion. The church’s inside will be remodelled and renovated for big public events in 2017.

Vicar Rev Canon Dr Neal Barnes says a fundraising drive for the project has already hit the “halfway” point.

He spoke of his “delight” at the local authority’s acknowledgement of the significant benefits new proposals would bring, not only to the church but to the city’s wider community.
