Plans have been revealed by Hull's Labour Council to build up to 650 houses on green fields behind Howdale Road (with access via Danby Close and East Carr Road).
This land was allocated for housing by the Labour Council in November 2017.
Labour councillors, including current Sutton Ward councillor Dave Craker, voted IN FAVOUR of allocating this land for housing. At the same meeting, they also voted AGAINST a proposal from opposition councillors to hold more public consultation. You can find the full minutes of that meeting here.
If Labour councillors hadn't voted to allocate this land for housing in 2017 then these current housing plans would never have happened.
