Exciting plans for a £32m retail and restaurant development, which would create over 250 local jobs, are continuing to progress apace in Kingswood.
A joint venture between Kingswood Parks Development Company and Kier Property is driving forward plans for a 10-unit development of shops and restaurants on land adjacent to the new flagship Next store on Ashcombe Road.
Plans for the retail development, which would potentially open in 2019 if approved, are being resubmitted to Hull City Council and developers are committed to driving the scheme forward. Local residents will be aware that a previous application was refused on retail policy grounds, but developers believe that those barriers have since been overcome and they are confident in their new application.
It’s a concept that has proven very successful in other towns and cities, with attractive retail destinations in the suburbs complementing the core city centre retail offering.
The overall objective of the plans is for Kingswood to continue to complement, not compete, with Hull city centre – retaining consumer spending to avoid leakage outside of Hull to other Yorkshire towns and cities, in turn bringing more people into the city. Developers say that this modern retail development would add to the attractiveness of Hull to potential visitors to the city.
