The 453-acre (183.3-ha) area includes 212 acres (85.8 ha) located within the East Hull Humber Freeport Tax Assisted Zone.

Simon Bird, regional director for the Humber, said: “The Humber International Enterprise Park (HIEP) is one of the premier development sites in the north of England. It is an exciting opportunity and great to have planning permission so that HIEP can now get up and running.

“The site offers huge potential to support business growth. Port-centric manufacturers and distributors would have easy access to import and export commodities while benefiting from the Humber freeport status.”
