The historic gateway into the city will be transformed after investment for the project has been secured.

More than a quarter of a million pounds is to be spent on a facelift for Hull’s Beverley Road.

Hull City Council has been awarded £1.6m from the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) for the major regeneration project.

£511,000 will be invested by the council and £500,000 from the private sector, bring the total to just over £2.5m.

The money will go towards improving shop fronts, carrying out repairs, and tackling anti social behaviour, like graffiti, for the south end of Beverley Road.

Councillor Martin Mancey, Portfolio Holder for the Beverley Road Town Heritage Initiative, says:

“This scheme will have a huge positive impact on the Beverley road area and deliver much-needed investment and heritage-led regeneration for one of the city’s most important historic gateways.

“Beverley road has been a major route in to the city from at least the 14th century and is still a key gateway for visitors and residents alike. This major public investment from the HLF will allow the council to support the regeneration of this important historic area and to deliver lasting improvements for the benefit of local people.”

The scheme will start later this year and will continue until 2020.
