A new parklet outdoor seating area will soon be installed on Princes Dock Street.
Hull City Council has awarded the project’s manufacture, supply, delivery, and installation to Pearl Green Engineering Limited, according to a published decision record.
The six parklets will be located between Mccoy’s and Bar 82 in the existing pedestrian zone.
As part of the Old Town’s regeneration, they will transform Princes Dock Street and support the city’s evening economy in a bar and restaurant-filled area.
Cllr Paul Drake-Davis, Hull City Council’s portfolio holder for regeneration, said: “Parklets bring numerous virtues to cities, transforming underutilised spaces into dynamic public realms.
“They can enhance community engagement, promote pedestrian-friendly environments, introduce green infrastructure and support local businesses.
“Princes Dock Street is already popular with Hull’s evening economy and this trial will give the council a better insight into parklets’ impact for the area’s hospitality businesses during the summer months.”
A full tender process will be initiated by the council if the trial proves successful and there is greater demand.
With the help of the four-year £6m Local Centres investment scheme, the parklets used in the trial will eventually be relocated to other high streets and commercial districts in Hull.
A traffic regulation order has been amended to include two units on Silver Street that will soon be installed following the engagement of businesses for the parklets on Princes Dock Street.
There should be one outside One Stop and one opposite Silvers Bar, at the ends of Silver Street.
