The site is located to the south of Hedon Road in East Hull due east of Queen Elizabeth Dock on the Humber foreshore. It's at the Eastern end of the city’s waterfront, adjacent to the Old Fleet Drain. Located within the Eastern Employment Corridor of Hull, it lies in the recently announced Enterprise Zone. Earmarked for redevelopment, the site presents a significant opportunity to capture economic activity arising from inward investment by Siemens within the Port of Hull.
The Eastern Corridor is predominantly a general industrial, manufacturing and warehousing area comprising older and traditional large scale industrial developments. The continuing growth of the port, together with the associated support industries for the renewables sector, would suggest that there will be a need for ancillary industrial provision in this area.
