ABP gets consent for Hull site

[ April 20, 2022   //   ]

Associated British Ports (ABP) has been granted outline planning consent for over 4.25 million sq ft of industrial, manufacturing and logistics development at the Port of Hull by East Riding of Yorkshire Council.

The 453 acres of prime land includes 212 acres within the Humber Freeport, which offers tax incentives for inward investors.

The site is part of a tranche of more than 1,000 acres of development land across 14 locations, which ABP has launched to support the UK’s supply chain, manufacturing, and renewable energy sectors.

ABP’s regional director for the Humber, Simon Bird, said: “The site offers huge potential to support business growth. Port-centric manufacturers and distributors would have easy access to import and export commodities while benefiting from the Humber Freeport status.”
