Building Homes in Hull
A good relationship between Hull City Council, local builders and building industry suppliers is vital to building better homes in Hull. To help achieve this, the Council is organising an event for small businesses and sole traders in the construction industry, which takes place on Tuesday 27 November from 4 – 8pm at the DoubleTree Hilton on Ferensway in Hull.
There is a line-up of top class speakers, including Lord Haskins, Chair of the Humber Local Enterprise Partnership, Cllr John Black, Portfolio Holder for Housing, Dave Richmond, the council’s City Manager for Neighbourhoods and Housing and Mark Leaf from Keepmoat Homes. They will outline the opportunities available and how to bid for work from the council and as sub-contractors to developers working on Hull’s current and forthcoming housebuilding sites. As well as representatives from the council and its developers, local traders will have access to business support providers who will be on hand to offer advice about the opportunities available. With some 20 organisations and businesses involved, there will be ample time for networking too.
Encouraging small businesses and sole traders to attend Cllr Black said: “The next phase of our ambitious, city-wide housing regeneration programme extends to developing a number of smaller sites. Their requirements in terms of development and supply trades are ideally suited to the small, local contractor and I hope as many firms as possible come along and see the sites which will be brought forward. Also, it’s a great chance to raise your business profile and prepare for forthcoming opportunities.”
“Cllr Black added: “We require our partners to employ a substantial proportion of their workforce from the local labour market so they will be looking to team up with small businesses and traders to help them meet their targets.”
