Stop Labour's East Carr housing plans

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.

Despite the pandemic and pressure pilling on the Council's finances, the Labour administration is set to press ahead regardless with expensive gates to protect the councillor car park at the Guildhall.

The Liberal Democrat group have long called to scrap this "unnecessary elitism" and give the money back to local communities who have been left behind for a decade.
