Keepmoat completes development of more than 160 homes in Hull

Doncaster-based Keepmoat Homes has finished its Alexandra Gardens development in Hull, part of the Citywide Development Agreement.

The development is on the site of the former Greif Industrial Estate, and has been delivered over two years with work having started on site in 2017.

25% of the properties have been designated Affordable Homes and will be managed by Hull City Council.

Alongside the delivery of much needed new homes for Hull, Keepmoat Homes has also sought to support the local community. Over the course of the development it is estimated that the project has generated over £2.7million of social value, created employment and training opportunities for local people including employing 12 full time apprentices and safeguarding a further 94 full time equivalent jobs. The developer also set up a community fund which invested and supported local charities and community groups.

Cllr John Black, Portfolio Holder for Housing at Hull City Council said: “Thanks to partnerships like Citywide, the council is delivering its ambition to offer a wider choice of good quality affordable housing and transform neighbourhoods into attractive and sustainable residential areas. Alexander Gardens ticks all the boxes, including provision of council homes for rent which is integral to our new build programme.”

David Gilling, Land and Partnerships Director at Keepmoat Homes said: “We’re delighted to be able to celebrate the completion of our Alexandra Gardens development with our partners today. Through the CityWide Partnership, Keepmoat Homes is proud to be delivering the new homes Hull needs but also to be investing in the city and its people.

“We believe that the regeneration of this site goes beyond bricks and mortar and that through the investments we have made into training opportunities for local people and to local charities and community groups this development will have a positive legacy on this part of the city.”
