Hull port project gets the go-ahead

Transport Minister Derek Twigg has announced that Associated British Ports’ proposed Quay 2005 container terminal has received final approval.
This announcement follows an earlier “minded to” approval announced by former Transport Minister David Jamieson in January this year, subject to satisfaction on nature conservation issues, and any other relevant new matters arising.
Derek Twigg said: “After carefully considering the likely impacts on local residents, and balancing them against the wider economic benefits, I am satisfied that, overall, the Quay 2005 project will bring significant benefits to the city and to the region as a whole. He also went on to say that: “I am also satisfied that the project’s likely impacts on nature conservation sites will be adequately compensated for by the creation of replacement habitat in the Humber estuary.”
