Competition to name new retail park in Kingswood

06th Mar

A competition has been launched
to name a new retail development in Kingswood.

Property developers Priority
Space and Hull City Council are inviting local people to name the £2.5m retail
development on their doorstep.

The retail development on Wawne
Road will be opened in May and will include a One Stop convenience store,
veterinary practice, pharmacy, bakery, takeaways and a family restaurant.

Adam Richardson, co-director at Priority
Space, said: “We’re looking for a name which reflects the area and gives the
retail development a clear identity. The retail park has been designed to meet
the needs of the community it serves so we’re delighted to invite them to have
their say and choose a name which puts it on the map. It’s really important to
us wherever we build that our developments become part of the community and
owned by the community.”

The retail development on Wawne Road, Kingswood is part of a partnership between the council and property consortium KSHP – made up of housing developer Keepmoat, Strata Homes, Persona, part of Home Group and commercial property specialists, Priority Space. The partnership will deliver 1,660 new homes on Wawne Road, of which the first phase of 747 is well under way.

Entries into the naming competition can be made by email, telephone or post – details on how to enter can be found at: Follow the Hull Foredyke Neighbourhood team at Hull City Council on Twitter for updates: @HCCForedyke.

The competition closes at 5pm on March 26. The chosen name for the development will be announced in April.
