Hessle project receives go-ahead

A business park joint venture between Hull-based Wykeland Group and K B Properties is set to create more than 3,000 jobs after the Hessle building project was given outline planning permission by East Riding of Yorkshire Council.

Situated near the Humber Bridge, the 52.6-acre Bridgeland development consists of 612,708 sq ft of offices, research space and hi-tech light manufacturing facilities across two sites separated by Boothferry Road.

The Bridgeland Ltd joint venture also includes plans for two A3 cafe units, a pedestrian crossing over Boothferry Road and junction improvements to the A63 westbound off slip at Ferriby.

A list of conditions between Bridgeland Ltd and the council have been included with the consent, allowing local authority officials to address local concerns and have a say in the construction, which is expected to start within a year.

Wykeland managing director Dominic Gibbons said: “This is great news after 13 long years of hard work, patience and dedication from the team, on a scheme that we really believe will have a huge positive impact on the region. Our next step will be to work through the conditions with a view to progressing the development as soon as possible.”
