Object to East Carr planning proposal by Hull City Council

0 have signed. Let’s get to 2,500!


Hull City Council has revealed plans for a new 650 property development to be built on the Green Fields at the rear of Spring Cottage and Howdale Road.

In these worrying times of Covid-19 we have decided to be socially responsible and hold an on-line petition to object to Hull City Councils proposals.

Access to the site has been suggested using Danby Close and East Carr Road.

Whilst we accept that new homes need building, this area is one of the only remaining green field areas within the Kingston upon Hull boundary and has wonderful wildlife within the hedgerow and surrounding fields. These fields are enjoyed by Ramblers, Runners, Cyclists, Dog walkers, playing children, model Airplane flyers & campers amongst many others activities. 

These field Flood annually, with this years being one of the worst in recent memory. In 2007 many houses in Stornaway Square suffered flood damage as a result of water quantity on the field. The vast quantity of water is held on these fields before eventually draining in to Sutton Cross and Holderness Drains. - Where will this water go if a new development takes place? Holderness Drain over-tops on an annual basis already with the Golf Driving range suffering floods twice this year already

Danby Close has become accustomed to on street parking and is expected to be the main route into the site. All site deliveries are envisaged to use this route to enter and exit the development.

East Carr Road is the second suggested site entry and exit route.

This road is a single lane road with numerous established parking areas leading to a single track lane. Traffic in this area is already bad and the area has seen recent accidents as a result. This can only get substantially worse.

Pollution will most likely increase with the additional traffic generated by the site being built and the future new home owners.

The privacy of many home owners will be impacted along with an increased noise pollution caused by the building works and home owners. 

There are limited amenities in the area with Spring Cottage school being over subscribed as well as other schools in adjoining catchment areas. Local shops are sparse so home delivered shopping is likely to increase again causing traffic and pollution increases.

In 1994, Hull City Council denied planning applications due to the potential traffic and environmental issues. Nothing has changed since then so can only worsen. 

Please sign this petition and support our objection to these proposals and save this last bit of Countryside in Hull.

Many Thanks
