City Plan - ambitions and priorities

Supporting the plan

For this plan to succeed there are some fundamental building blocks that need to be in place.  Some of them, such as new housing initiatives and digital enhancements will create significant numbers of jobs in themselves. Others, such as developing a clear skills plan, will make it possible for Hull residents to succeed in gaining sustainable employment. 

To achieve the City Plan ambitions there are some basic services that the council needs to continue to provide to ensure that the quality of life is maintained, such as waste management, but also so that the other projects in the City Plan can be delivered; for example -

  • Streetscene infrastructure (for example to support growing visitor numbers)
  • Housing investment
  • Property strategy (identifying where others can deliver key projects)
  • External funding capacity
  • Transport policy (a major feasibility study is under way to look at proposals to make it easier to link the Marina and the City Centre across the A63)
  • City planning

In addition, there are other things that must be in place to enable success in the development of jobs through the City Plan.  These programmes include –

Learning and Skills Programme

  • Free Early education for 1,000 two year olds
  • 'Making choices' (targeted basic skills to JSA claimants)
  • Guidance guarantee
  • Work insight hub

Digital Programme (across the subregion)

  • Connectivity
  • Data Centres for Hull and Humber
  • Content creation (link to Digital Centre for Innovation at the Fruit Market area)

Marketing the City

  • Promoting the city and its plans with government, with investors and with visitors – this work spans the whole of the City Plan

The detailed plan was launched at an event at Hull University on 5 June 2013.

Following this, the interactive, online plan will continue to evolve as local residents – and anyone who has a stake in Hull’s future – are invited to contribute their own ideas and projects. Those who don’t have access to the web at home, work or school will be able to view the plan at public and community buildings across the city and at a number of City Plan road show events.
