Planning Committee gives green light to next step in regenerating Hull’s Albion Square



The latest version of plans for Hull’s Albion Square have been given the go-ahead by planners.

Cabinet approved the development in December 2021, and since then demolition of the former BHS and Co-Op buildings site has been taking place, by VINCI Construction.

This is the second time plans, designed by Faulkner Browns Architects and landscape architects Gillespies, have been discussed at Planning Committee.

The development plans have been altered from the first submission, in conjunction with stakeholders.

The approved plans incorporate flood mitigation measures and a reduction in the height of the residential accommodation in Bond Street to bring the height in line with buildings to the corner of Jameson and Bond Street.

Demolition will take a total of 80 weeks and includes the removal and renovation of three existing murals; the Grade II listed Three Ships Mural, Sponge Mural and Alan Boyson’s Shoal of Fish Mural which was successfully removed in the summer. All three murals will be incorporated into the new development.

Construction is now expected to start in 2023. It has been supported by £832,000 from Homes England and £7million Levelling Up Funding, along with £2.5million from the Government’s Local Growth Fund, which was secured by the Hull and East Yorkshire LEP as part of the Government’s commitment to the Northern Powerhouse.
