Levelling Up Funding to support creation of commercial and residential units

A heritage building in Hull city centre is to be restored to create a commercial unit and four apartments.

HU1 2AP Limited has been awarded £78,865.71 towards its project at 3 Parliament Street which will bring back into use over 300 sqm of unused floor space.

The grant is from Hull City Council’s government-backed Levelling Up Funding.

The project will also restore a Grade II listed building, with four one-bedroom apartments to be created over floors one to three for flexible use as either dwellings or holiday lets, above a ground floor commercial unit.

Listed building consent and change of use application have already been obtained for the scheme for which HU1 2AP Limited will be investing more than £184,000 of its own capital.

Cllr Paul Drake-Davis, the council’s portfolio holder for regeneration and housing, said: “It is pleasing that the council has been able to grant further Levelling Up Funding towards city centre regeneration.

“Hull has a shortage of city centre living and this applicant’s project will go towards alleviating that, as well as bringing in private capital.

“It is brilliant to hear that more unused floor space will be brought back into use, whilst also helping to restore another heritage building.”

Hull and East Riding council have chosen to back the Devolution consultation.
