Kingswood is one of Hull’s more modern suburbs. Development started in the 1990s and the area has expanded ever since, with shops and amenities being added all the time. The most recent plans for new shops in the area estimate that up to 250 full-time jobs could be created, alongside part-time vacancies.
The main development in the area so far has been the creation of more than 3,600 new homes in Hull. There are plans to almost double this figure over the coming years.
The Kingswood Area Action Plan has helped to bring in new housing developments. It was designed to accelerate investment and encourage building throughout the suburb.
Alongside new homes, shops and amenities, the action plan includes creating a new network of roads and greenways, as well as expanding nearby Broadacre Primary School. The school currently has an annual intake of around 280 students, which looks set to increase to 650.
