Hull to use levelling up funding for biodiversity

Hull City Council has announced that it has allocated levelling up funding to help increase biodiversity in one of the city’s local parks.

The funding has come from the Levelling Up Funding Parks Fund, with £85,000 going towards park improvement, through the installation of new seating, and biodiversity developments. The project is set to begin soon and is expected to take around five weeks to complete.

Cllr Julia Conner, Hull City Council’s Portfolio Holder for Environment, said:

“I am delighted that we are able to fund the park projects through the Levelling Up Fund.

“Alderman Kneeshaw Park is a green space in need of uplift and improving and these works will do that, creating an inviting area and encouraging pride in the local park of Bilton Grange.

"Increasing biodiversity is important to the council and the community involved in the project and has been at the forefront of discussions.”

Chair of Friends of Alderman Kneeshaw Park, Debbie Morrell, added:

“The consultations and discussions with the council have enabled us to have been part of this journey from day one.

“As a group, we see ourselves as guardians of the park and have the knowledge of the area and the community and know how this funding is best spent to support that.

“We want our community to really feel ownership of this space and we’re grateful to Hull City Council for giving us the tools to utilise the park the best way we can and for being so instrumental in the project as a whole.”
