Hull City Council has secured £1m to support the regeneration of Whitefriargate under the Humber High Street Challenge fund.
The fund, from the Humber LEP, is providing grants aimed at encouraging private sector landlords and property owners in each of the four Humber local authorities to undertake building and conversion projects that animate high streets, diversify the traditional high street offer and bring unused floor space back into use.
