99 new council homes for Hull

Hull City Council and Caddick Construction start construction of 99 new affordable homes at Dane Park Road

Hull City Council and Caddick Construction have broken ground on-site to create 99 affordable homes at Dane Park Road, with handover due in Spring 2027.

Once complete, this new build neighbourhood will comprise 20 one-bedroom, 49 two-bedroom, 20 three-bedroom and 10 four-bedroom homes, all of which will be available for affordable rent.

The Dane Park scheme will incorporate Air Source Heat Pumps and Photovoltaic roof panels to all homes, as well as EV charging points to some properties. As well as green spaces around the site, there are over 250 trees being planted around the surrounding area.

Caddick was appointed to the project via a Direct Selection under the EN:Procure New Build Framework, to promote early contractor involvement and de-risk the project to bring greater value to Hull City Council.

Sister company Caddick Civil Engineering has also been appointed to deliver the groundworks ahead of the main construction work.

Paul Dodsworth, Construction Group Managing Director, comments: “We are proud to be growing our presence on frameworks such as EN:Procure, which help to drive high standards in project delivery. Through early engagement between our team, our client and project stakeholders we can ensure that all public sector projects are delivered efficiently and with real value for money. With all aspects of the build included in this framework, from site preparation and remediation to civil engineering, we are able to create further efficiencies by working closely with our civils arm, Caddick Civil Engineering.   

“We are pleased to have been appointed to the scheme at Dane Park, and we look forward to working closely with Hull City Council to bring these much-needed homes to families across the city.”

Cllr Paul Drake-Davis, Hull City Council’s Portfolio Holder for Regeneration and Housing, said: “We welcome our new partner Caddick Construction and the opportunity to work together at Dane Park, one of the biggest council house new build developments to start in Hull for many years. As well as building 99 well designed, energy efficient, family homes, these much needed houses will enable the Council to play its part in tackling climate change and just as importantly, help our tenants save money with lower electricity and heating bills."

Managed by social housing consortium, Efficiency North, EN:Procure is a specialist procurement body providing services designed to support the need for more investment in affordable new housing.

Emma Mottram, director of operations at EN:Procure, said: “The appointment of Caddick Construction via our New Build framework marks a significant step forward for this development, which will provide essential new build housing for the area. Our new build frameworks are developed to ensure efficient, reliable procurement is accessible for Members delivering affordable housing. It’s fantastic to see this achieved for Dane Park Road with added value around sustainability and delivery of apprenticeship through the EN:Able Futures Flexible Apprenticeship Services.”
