Development Update: Yorkshire Energy Park

If you are interested in commercial scaffolding it may interest you to know that plans for the £200 million Yorkshire Energy Park have now been appointed two commercial property agents. BDaily report that “GVA, the national real estate advisor, and Hull-based Garness Jones will look to secure additional national and international end users at the park, which has the potential to create more than 1,000 new jobs”.

The announcement comes twelve months after the initial proposal which was met with initial skepticism. HU12 Online reported of anger amongst local groups about a lack of consultation over what the initial plans would involve. Councillor Mike Bryan, local ward councillor on the East Riding of Yorkshire Council, commented on the news of the Energy Park:

“It would appear yet again and this is no surprise, that Hull City Council are looking to develop the Airfield located in Preston South, but this is the entrance to the Historic Town of Hedon. I have heard there was a secret meeting about the Yorkshire Energy Park on the 8th June. I was not invited, but I was told further information was promised. I have had no communications with Yorkshire Energy Park over this very important proposal.

However, despite initial objections, and after several rounds of consultation it looks like the plans will start to move ahead. The two property agents will work with existing supporters, who include E.ON and Vodafone, to attract others to take part in the development and ultimately residency at the site.

he development team state that “The Yorkshire Energy Park is set to attract significant inward investment and employment, bringing together low carbon energy generation and storage, education and training, and intensive industries such as information technology and food processing, on one sire, providing a business environment unique in the UK.”
