New development – Ings

Camberwell WayIngs housing regeneration

In east Hull, the long term plan identified the need to demolish around 2,000 existing sub standard properties and deliver over 4,000 new and refurbished homes in the Ings and Preston Road areas. Progress on the ground to date includes over 200 new homes and the demolition of over 600 sub standard properties.

This long term plan was captured in the Holderness Road Corridor Area Action Plan developed in consultation with the community and adopted in 2011.  Funding for the 10-15 year regeneration programme was withdrawn in 2010 as part of a package of measures introduced by the coalition government in response to the economic downturn.

Although nationally there is now much less funding to deliver regeneration plans, significant funding has been secured to progress the regeneration of the area.

Anyone who is directly affected by the acquisition programme will receive information and advice about the housing choices and financial help available to them. One to one meetings will be arranged with residents to discuss options in more detail at an appropriate time for their phase and they will be supported throughout the process. The dates are when the Renewals Team will visit residents to discuss options for relocation, not demolition dates. The programme is on schedule with phase F now completed and most residents in phases G and H have been re housed with the remaining awaiting the completion of new build homes.

The Ings Caspons

Independent reports over the years have revealed that the Caspons are structurally problematic and would be very expensive in the long term to put right. In addition, residents complain that the under-floor electric heating systems are inefficient and costly.

The layout of the houses is generally considered to be an important contributory factor to crime and antisocial behaviour.

The properties themselves are poorly positioned and close together so that they overlook each other. The footpaths running through the area are difficult to light effectively and the inconvenient garages and parking areas are not in open view and therefore considered unsafe.
