150 aim for homes deal


MORE than 150 firms turned up to a meeting this week to hear a council outline plans to revamp its housing stock under the Decent Homes programme.

Kingston upon Hull City Council wants to spruce up 29,500 homes by March 2010.

Among the groups showing up for the £160 million contract were Wates, Kier and Bullock, Leeds firms A Baldwin and Eric Bradley, and a smattering of local outfits including Quibell, F Hall and Houlton.

The council will begin shortlisting firms in September and expects to appoint winners next April. It is still deciding whether to let the deal as one or break it down into smaller packages.
