UK: A plan to convert the former Victoria Hospital for Sick Children on Hull’s Park Street has been given conditional approval.

The decision by Hull City Council's planning committee will see the empty buildings, which date back to 1890, converted into 60 apartments. The approved scheme also includes the construction of a new-build three- to five-storey complex of 68 apartments.

Speaking at the committee, developer James Ledger, managing director of Hull Serviced Apartments, said: "It's a good scheme and such a beautiful building."

He said the development would include significant new landscaping, including the replacement of existing off-road parking schemes in front of the main buildings with tree-planting along Park Street.

His company has overseen a number of similar transformation schemes involving historic buildings across Hull in recent years, including the former James Reckitt Library in Holderness Road and the former Endsleigh Centre convent in Beverley Road which have both been converted into serviced apartment schemes.

The Park Road site was sold last year by the Humber NHS Foundation Trust.

This week's approval was granted subject to a number of detailed conditions being met.
