Hull East

Humber Freeport - Hull East

The Hull East tax site takes in several different parcels of land. They are ABP’s Humber International Enterprise Park, the Yorkshire Energy Park, Saltend Chemicals Park and eastern portion of the Port of Hull. A new hydrogen plant is proposed within this zone as well as the opportunity to decarbonise Saltend Chemicals Park and create exportable surplus of hydrogen and decarbonised chemical products.

The Yorkshire Energy Park offers immediate developable opportunities including incubation spaces and also the Saltend proposed site for Pensana plc, a rare earth processing plant which forms part of the magnet / battery supply chain for offshore wind and electric vehicles.

How do existing local
businesses benefit?

We will know more about this as details emerge. However, it is the intention to incentive new investors to the area to use local suppliers, to boost existing businesses across the Humber. Businesses will also benefit from the general uplift in economic activity in the area catalysed by the freeport.

How can my land be added
as a tax site or customs site?

It is our ambition that if Humber Freeport is successful it will grow over time. However, it will take Government approval to add new sites. We hope new Government guidance on this will be made available in the future to help guide how sites can be expanded.
