Spring Bank Regeneration Project drop-in for business and property owners

Business and property owners on Spring Bank are encouraged to attend a drop-in session detailing a Shop Front Design Guide as part of the ongoing Spring Bank Conservation Area Regeneration Project.

The event will take place next Thursday, 31 August, providing visitors the opportunity to provide feedback on the plans and what they would like to see going forward.

The Shop Front Design Guide is in the draft phase and is one three key objectives of the regeneration project, alongside Character Appraisal and Masterplan.

Spring Bank Conservation Area is characterised by an eclectic mix of residential, retail, hospitality, office and community spaces, as well as its Victorian architecture.

It has been identified as being a vulnerable conservation area due to negative trends affecting its heritage significance, including it being an area of high deprivation.

This project, covering the entirety of Spring Bank from Freetown Way to Spring Bank West, is aimed at business and property owners in the conservation area, as well as those who live in and frequent it.

Hull City Council received a grant from Historic England to undertake Spring Bank Conservation Area Regeneration Project.

Alongside appointed consultant Seven Architecture, the council is conducting public engagement to gain opinions on the area.

Numerous public drop-in sessions have already taken place and more will take place over the coming weeks.

Wednesday’s session will take place at Spring Bank Community Centre on West Parade from 4-7pm.

Residents of and visitors to Spring Bank are welcome to attend further drop-ins on 8 and 29 September.

Officers will be on hand to answer questions and visitors are welcome to come and go as they please.

Feedback can also be given by filling in an online survey here.
