Humber logistics centre gets green light

East Halton, UK: North Lincolnshire Council has given the green light for a £100m logistics centre that will include transport depots, warehousing and a business park.

There will also be transport links to Immingham and the Humber Sea Terminal. The application had previously been referred to the government because the site was outside the local plan and because of concerns over the impact on the estuary’s water birds.

Liz Redfern, the leader of North Lincolnshire Council, says: “This is a major breakthrough and marks the first step to attracting further investment on the South Humber Gateway. The site is the fastest growing ports and logistics centre in the country and has the potential to be Europe’s leader in renewable energy.”
