20 eco-friendly homes to be built on former Hull council housing land in Bransholme
TWENTY eco-friendly homes are to be built on former council housing land.
The city council's cabinet is expected to approve the disposal of part of the 3.6-acre site at Selworthy Close in Bransholme for a pilot construction scheme. The project will see system-built affordable housing with high eco standards being constructed at the site to test the viability and demand for such developments.
Councillor Anita Harrison welcomed the proposals. She said: "It is absolutely fantastic news.

"Currently, we have a shortage of housing and I welcome any new development that will help tackle this problem.
"At the moment, about 70 people are going for one house on the estate so there needs to be something done to offer new homes to people that need them.
"I hope a developer will be found soon and construction can begin as soon as possible."
A report for the cabinet says it is expected the council would transfer the land to a developer as a way of helping to subsidise the project.
As yet, no buyer has been found for the site.
