Mobile Exhibitions Offers the Public the Chance to View Green Port Hull plans.
Friday 06th January, 2012
Members of the public are being urged to see for themselves proposals for the Green Port Hull development as a mobile exhibition takes to the streets of Hull next week.
Across three days a bus housing the public exhibitions will visit residential areas close to the proposed development and will be positioned in the city centre to allow as many people as possible the opportunity to view the proposals from Associated British Ports (ABP) and Siemens.
Applications were submitted to Hull City Council in late December for the development of a factory, office, storage and testing areas for the production of wind turbines and the erection of an operational wind turbine together with associated infrastructure. Representatives from ABP and Siemens will be on board the bus to answer questions regarding these plans while a tv screen will show a fly-through of the proposed development and leaflets will be provided to take away.
The public exhibition will visit the locations as follows:
Wednesday 11th January
4pm until 7pm at Victoria Dock Village Hall car park.
Thursday 12th January
9am until 11.30am at Wentworth Way (on the road), New Bridge Road.
12noon until 1.30pm at the lay-by near Embassy Hotel, Hedon Road.
2pm until 3.30pm at the Marfleet Avenue lay-by near the old Fenner site, opposite Ceylon Street.
4pm until 6pm at Rosmead Street, near St. Johns church.
Friday 13th January
10am until 4pm at Queen Victoria Square, Hull city centre.
Matt Jukes, ABP Port Director Hull & Goole, said: “Teams from ABP and Siemens have collectively put in a huge amount of work prior to the submission of the Green Port Hull applications and we are delighted to now be able to share this with local residents. The public consultations will demonstrate what has already been achieved and what we hope to see develop as part of the complete transformation of Alexandra Dock. We hope as many people as possible take this opportunity to view the plans which will firmly position Hull as a centre of excellence for renewable energy.”
Dan McGrail, Project Manager for Siemens, said: “Submission of the planning application for Green Port Hull marks a significant step for the project and is the product of months of detailed work and consultation by teams in ABP and Siemens. We now look forward to discussing our proposals with the wider public at these important consultation events.”
