Hull City Council’s Cabinet has today (Monday 25 March) taken the next steps in relation to the improvements at Queens Gardens, by agreeing to start the process of securing a contractor to carry out the works.

The works include rebuilding the walls along the northern boundary, landscaping and additional tree planting.

Currently, local contractor, C R Reynolds, is on site delivering major improvements to the green space in Hull city centre. The works include rebuilding the failing boundary walls, improving accessibility with new ramps and steps and amphitheatre style seating. There is also improved bio-diversity, with a new planting scheme, including 99 new trees to futureproof the space. In addition, 323 trees are being planted at a number of off-site locations, including ConnexinLive, Hull History Centre and Liddell Street Park.

Councillor Jackie Dad, deputy leader of Hull City Council, said: "Queens Gardens is a much-loved city centre park and I have been pleased by how well the current phase of the scheme has been going.

"As the city centre’s primary green space, these additional improvements are critical to the overall regeneration of the gardens.

"Not only will the works address problems with boundary walls, they will also enhance accessibility with new ramps and steps and improve the overall experience for everyone visiting the gardens."

The procurement for a principal contractor will get underway shortly.
