The site is located to the north of A1033 Hedon Road in East Hull in close proximity to the King George and Queen Elizabeth docks. Located within the Hedon Road Employment Corridor of Hull, it lies within 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 cleared site was part of Willerby Holiday Homes totalling 1.94 ha (4.8 acres), and has current planning permission for 9,210 m2 production facility (HCC Employment Land Review). The site is owned by Willerby Holiday Homes.
The Hedon Road Corridor is predominantly a general industrial, manufacturing and warehousing area comprising older and traditionally 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 industrial provision in this area.
