UK Dredging

UK Dredging (UKD) operates the largest British-owned dredging fleet and specialises in the provision of reliable and cost effective port maintenance dredging services.

Associated British Ports (ABP) has been granted outline planning consent for more than 4.25 million sq ft of industrial, manufacturing and logistics development at the Port of Hull by East Riding of Yorkshire Council.

The 453 acres of prime land includes 212 acres located within the East Hull Humber Freeport Tax Assisted Zone, which offers significant tax incentives for inward investors.

Simon Bird, Regional Director for the Humber, said: “This is one of the premier development sites in the North of England. It’s an exciting opportunity and great to have planning permission so that HIEP can now get up and running.

“The site offers huge potential to support business growth. Port-centric manufacturers and distributors would have easy access to import and export commodities while benefiting from the Humber Freeport status.”

The site is part of a tranche of more than 1,000 acres of development land across 14 locations, which ABP has launched to support the UK’s supply chain, manufacturing, and renewable energy sectors.

CBRE and Savills are advising ABP on the development opportunities at Humber International Enterprise Park.
