The Yorkshire Energy Park is a potential new development located in the East Riding of Yorkshire.
This major strategic site is close to nationally important energy, sea, road and rail infrastructure with an international airport a short drive away.
It is an ideal location for businesses looking for power and data resilience, links to research and development, reinforced by an exceptionally strong transport infrastructure and access to a skilled workforce.
Close to the Humber, the UK’s Energy Estuary, the synergies with like-minded companies and infrastructure will be second to none for companies looking to thrive and grow.
The land is a former aerodrome site on the outskirts of Hull, within the village of Preston, to the west of Hedon and close to the villages of Paull and Thorngumbald.
The Yorkshire Energy Park has the potential to create approximately 1,000 net operational jobs.
Leading energy supplier E.ON, Almax, IBM, L&G Investment Management, SSE Utilities, ZTE, Vodafone and local education provider Hull College have already announced their support for the energy park plans.
An outline planning application was submitted in May 2017.
If planning permission is granted, Yorkshire Energy Park will be developed in a beautifully landscaped, low density and high quality setting incorporating:
- A mixture of space for businesses operating in key strategic sectors for the region
- An on-site energy generation, off-site energy generation, and a primary sub-station providing private wire electricity to the wider Energy Park
- Education and research campus
- Associated on site accommodation
- A data centre
- An outdoor building materials and testing facility
- Sports facilities for the community
