Hull City Council appoints contractor to carry out works at Myton Retail Park
A contractor has been appointed to carry out the demolition of two buildings at Myton Retail Park and extend the existing car park onto the cleared site.
Hull City Council has published a decision record confirming the awarding of the contract to PBS Construction Limited for the sum of £175,939 after an open tender process in which bids were assessed on a ‘best value’ basis, combining price and quality.
The 2.7-acre retail park is located on Myton Street/Ferensway.
The buildings set for demolition are the former American Golf and Maplin buildings.
The existing car park will be extended by 34 spaces, taking the total number of space to 166.
Hull City Council’s Streetscene team will operate the car park as a pay and display public car park for which planning consent has been granted.
Councillor Daren Hale, Leader of Hull City Council said: “The Myton Retail Park was acquired by the council last year as a strategic gateway site that will open the door for future development.
“In the meantime, the proposed works will reduce the council’s holding costs and also generate car park income.”
Works will commence soon and is expected to take around 6-8 weeks.
