?25 million is to be spent giving Hull the biggest facelift

:00:13.:00:16.

People living in the city are promised street

:00:17.:00:25.

Our Culture Correspondent Anne`Marie Tasker reports.

:00:26.:00:28.

It's not had a facelift for decades

:00:29.:00:30.

but within three years this is what Hull City centre could look like.

:00:31.:00:33.

Street level fountains in Queen Victoria Square,

:00:34.:00:34.

architecture lit at night and pedestrianising the Fruit Market,

:00:35.:00:37.

Hull City Council's paying the first half of the ?25 million bill

:00:38.:00:44.

because it believes the changes will bring in new business.

:00:45.:00:49.

If we can attract those big companies, and get

:00:50.:00:53.

more jobs, higher quality jobs, more income into the city, then that, in

:00:54.:00:57.

turn, will provide more revenue to restore some of the funding that

:00:58.:01:04.

central government has cut from our day`to`day services.

:01:05.:01:09.

Hull City Council says that it feels that the

:01:10.:01:13.

city is looking tired. But do people living here feel that that will be

:01:14.:01:16.

They need to make it look more attractive, so

:01:17.:01:26.

that it looks like people actually care about the place.

:01:27.:01:30.

The council are going to spend 12 within pounds. To do this? We need

:01:31.:01:37.

to do so much to bring tourism in. And I think this will.

:01:38.:01:45.

Hull City Council has made no secret of the fact it needs to save ?48

:01:46.:01:48.

And starting this transformation will cost it more than ?12 million.

:01:49.:01:52.

But it's estimated it will bring an extra ?70 million

:01:53.:01:55.

And that it will support more than 500 new jobs over ten years.

:01:56.:01:59.

But one group that analyses our city's economies,

:02:00.:02:04.

We hear a lot of big numbers associated with big cultural events

:02:05.:02:14.

and sports events but the evidence suggests that the benefits are

:02:15.:02:18.

smaller and more local than the announcements suggests.

:02:19.:02:20.

But business aside, these plans will help highlight Hull's history `

our city. But with work not due to start

until Autumn, there's not much time to make all

:02:50.:02:51.

these plans a reality by 2017. Tonight I spoke to Steven Bayes from
