Public invited to second round of consultation events on energy park proposals

Members of the public are invited to a second series of consultation sessions as proposals for the Yorkshire Energy Park develop.

Following introductory consultation events held earlier this year, a further five drop-in sessions have been planned to update people on the plans.

The aim is to share the latest proposals and answer any questions about the proposed development.

Although plans are still in their infancy, the Yorkshire Energy Park development could bring energy, data and education together with businesses in a first for Yorkshire.

Rob Cawkwell, Project Director from Sewell Investments, said: “We want to bring communities with us as the plans develop and involve them in helping us to shape the planning application.

“We said we would feed back on the proposals after the first round of consultation in July and that’s a promise we are fulfilling.

“We feel we have taken the themes of the consultation into account and we look forward to seeing people as they continue to share their views.”

The Yorkshire Energy Park scheme is earmarked for the former aerodrome site within the boundary of Preston village, to the west of Hedon.

Hull founded developer Sewell Group and Hessle based telecommunications company MS3 Networks have partnered with investment and development company Chiltern Group in the proposed scheme.

Public consultation events are planned in Preston, Hedon, Paull and Thorngumbald next month.
