Naming ceremony for Grimsby’s newest streets in village-style community

The names of Grimsby’s newest streets have been revealed by the town’s MP.

Lia Nici, MP for Great Grimsby and Scartho councillor, officially unveiled the names of the new streets in King’s Park, Scartho, as she took her first look at the new village-style community that is being built next to the Diana, Princess of Wales hospital.

The roads – Williams Way and Harrys Drive – that run off the newly named Kings Park Road have been named in tribute to the princess’s sons.

King’s Park will offer a unique blend of 78 new homes, of which 65 are bungalows, in the first phase.

The first residents are expected to move in early next year.

A retail centre including a convenience store will serve the new neighbourhood.

The homes are part of a wider £45m scheme with outline planning permission for apartments for the over-55s and ‘step down’ and social care unit to support patients leaving hospital but who require on-going nursing care before returning home.

E5 Director Kevin Stevens said:

“We were delighted to be able to show Lia and our local councillors around King’s Park and explain our fresh approach to creating this new sustainable community for Grimsby.

“Our emphasis is on providing thoughtfully designed and high-quality homes that are affordable as well as supporting the local economy by using local businesses such as architects, builders and estate agents to deliver our schemes”.

Lia said:

“This new development has some really thoughtful planning and house design, which helps to keep a village feel to the area”.

“The two new road names also reflect the site’s history, connecting with Diana, Princess of Wales’ sons Princes William and Harry, which is a nice touch”.

Paul Barker, Managing Director of JemBuild, said:

“This is an exciting project that will raise the bar in terms of the standard of new build homes but at an affordable price”.
