Parliament to review Humber plans

[ April 3, 2014   //   ]

ABP has welcomed a Parliament review of Able UK’s plans to build a Marine Energy Park (AMEP)at East Halton  in the Humber Estuary – a project that could conflict with its own development plans for the area. ABP, which operates the nearby port o0f Immingham said that it welcomed the committee chairman’s call at a hearing on 3 April that both parties should work to reach a compromise as soon as possible.

Special hearings in front of a Parliamentary Committee will now follow. ABP said it was “extremely keen that swift progress is made”, adding that the decision was “undoubtedly a positive step forward and can now pave the way for a compromise to be agreed that will successfully deliver both AMEP and ABP’s Immingham Western Deepwater Jetty without further delay.”
