Sneak peek of Hull retail logistics site set to create up to 1,500 new jobs
New images have been released of a retail logistics facility set to create up to 1,500 jobs in East Yorkshire.
Developer Wykeland has unveiled images of the logistics development as part of its application to East Riding of Yorkshire Council.
Comprising 558,000 sq ft, the new facility is proposed to be built on Plot E at Wykeland’s Melton West business park, off the A63 west of Hull.
It is expected that the new facility will create between 1,300 and 1,500 permanent jobs, as well as supporting more than 1,000 jobs during the 17-month build phase.
Wykeland’s development director, Jonathan Stubbs, commented: “The new images illustrate how the facility will occupy a key plot at Melton West, benefiting from the existing infrastructure on and around the business park, which will be enhanced by a new roundabout approved under a previous planning consent.
“It will complement other facilities at Melton West and is consistent with the long-standing designation of the site for major employment uses of this kind.
“Most importantly, planning approval for this development will generate thousands of jobs and provide a huge economic stimulus that will be crucial to the region’s post-Covid recovery.”
