The construction of a community specifically for ex-personnel has been given the green light.
The Hull 4 Heroes Veterans Village was the idea of Paul Matson, a former Royal Artillery soldier.
“Everything that you could need when you come out of the Forces will be on site,” he said.
Planning for the 22-acre facility was recently approved by officials at Hull City Council and East Riding of Yorkshire Council.
It will include single storey one- and two-bedroom lodges and semi-detached family houses, accommodating up to 120 ex-Service personnel and their families.
It will also feature a community and support hub, training and horticultural facilities, as well as a visitors’ centre.
