Council progresses work on Hull Venue

Hull City Council has today (Thursday 21 July) published a Decision Record that moves forward the plans for a 3,500-seater conference and events centre in the city centre.

The Decision Record confirms the site assembly agreement between Hull City Council and Princes Quay Development Ltd.

This will be achieved by a series of land transactions which will allow for the development of Hull Venue, transforming a currently underused prime city centre site.

The Decision Record published today means the project will progress as scheduled, with the centre due to open in 2018 as part of the city’s Destination Hull legacy programme for UK City of Culture, supporting the city’s long-term ambition to become a world-class visitor destination.
