for the local community
Yorkshire Energy Park is a new development located on the former Hedon Aerodrome site on the outskirts of Hull, within the village of Preston, to the west of Hedon.
The energy and technology business park received its formal decision notice in late 2020 following East Riding of Yorkshire Council’s Planning Committee approval in 2019 following a significant amount of community support and backing of national businesses over recent years. Preparatory works to ready the site for its first occupiers has already begun with site surveys alongside detailed planning work taking place.
The Yorkshire Energy Park will bring significant investment and jobs to the local area, both during its construction phase and well into the future.
A flagship development for the UK, the park and its education provision will help develop green and technology skills for the future. People will be able to access apprenticeship and training opportunities to help them get into the job market, as well as support for new business start-ups.
Our Principal Education Partner, the University of Lincoln, will establish a campus on site and aim to up-skill and re-skill those who use the base, retaining and bolstering talent and skills in key industries within the Humber region.Find out more

120 construction jobs are expected to be generated each year, along with 60 indirect jobs over a 10 year construction phase.
In addition, we will target 80% employment from the local area and will set apprenticeship targets through the supply chain to create long term job prospects for young people locally.
The full time equivalent jobs once the Park is operational could be up to 2090 (gross), across the example sectors:
Up to 590 indirect jobs are expected to be created.
Throughout the construction and operation phases, we want to have a positive impact on our environment, and we must mitigate for any likely significant effects on biodiversity.Find out how
