Council planners unanimously back new scheme for east Hull

New plans to deliver an attractive retail development on a run-down site in east Hull have been unanimously approved by Hull City Council’s planning committee.

Dixon Dawson Charted Architects have developed the new proposals on behalf of Mount Pleasant Regeneration Limited for this key location at the corner of Mount Pleasant and Holderness Road and have produced a carefully designed scheme so to fit in with the existing street scene and link with the wider district centre.

In early April 2014 the planning committee unanimously backed the plans for four new retail units and a 90 space car park and welcomed the investment in this part of the city.

Two existing retail units which are currently empty, fronting Holderness Road will also be re-furbished and brought back into use as part of the overall project. 

The proposals will deliver:

• A new 25,000 sq. ft. store
• Further retail units of 2,000sqft, 1,500sqft and 1,000sqft
• District centre car park with approx. 90 spaces

Gavin Ward, Partner of Dixon Dawson Architects said, “This was a challenging scheme to design as it needed to respond to the adjacent developments of the area as well as provide a statement and focal point for the start of the Holderness Road District Centre”

The scheme is due to commence on site in Winter 2014.
