Houlton started in November on a £5m retail development in east Hull set to transform a run-down site located on a 1.8-acre site on the corner of Mount Pleasant and Holderness Road, Hull for Barnsley-based Dransfield Properties.

The plans were approved by Hull City Council in April and work on the project is scheduled for completion in June 2015.

The scheme will be anchored by a 25,000 sq ft B&M store with a garden centre. Four further new retail units will also be created. In addition, two empty shops fronting Holderness Road are being refurbished and brought back into use as part of the overall project.

As well as bringing a new retail development to this part of Holderness Road the scheme includes a new district centre car park with about 90 parking spaces.

Hull City Council leader councillor Stephen Brady said: "I welcome this further investment in east Hull by Dransfield Group who have a strong track record of successful regeneration in the area.

"I want to particularly thank Mark Dransfield who, with his team, have worked tirelessly with our regeneration team over a number of years to bring this development to fruition."

Mark Dransfield added: "We have been working towards bringing a scheme forward on this site for many years and there has been a great deal of support in the area to see further development in this part of east Hull."
