Work on ambitious plans to transform an east Hull housing estate is getting under way.

Some 650 energy efficient homes are due to be built in the Ings renewal area.

The housing development is part of a long-term plan to demolish some 2,000 sub-standard homes in the area and replace them with more than 4,000 new and refurbished ones.

And to mark the beginning of the work Councillor John Black – Hull City Council’s infrastructure portfolio holder – will put the ceremonial first spade in the ground at Perivale and Petersham Close.

He says the start of work represents a key milestone for the Ings estate.

Councillor Alan Gardiner, who represents the Ings ward, says the development will provide local residents with much better housing and a “beautiful” area in which to live.

New energy efficient homes will be built on the site, replacing the outdated Caspon properties that are costly to heat and repair and have structural problems.
