The project’s reported cost is thought to be the largest investment in the region for some time.
Around 400 jobs could reportedly be created under plans for a huge new warehouse and distribution centre at a business park on the outskirts of Hull.
Plans submitted by Hull developers Wykeland stated the 8,720 sq m facility would be built at the Melton West Business Park, near North Ferriby, reports Business Live.
The project’s estimated cost of £30 million is thought to be the largest investment in the region for some time.
It is believed the development is for a “global logistics company”, thought to be Amazon, with the company focusing on ‘last mile’ delivery operations.
The online retail giant and Wykeland have declined to confirm who will operate the centre.
If passed by East Riding Council it is understood the business would look to open next year, providing a major boost for the local jobs market.
