A PLAN to build a Park & Ride near to Hedon (Preston South), to ease congestion in Hull, has been reported today by the Yorkshire Post. The report says that Hull City Council has secured £70,000 towards developing plans for the project which the newspaper describes as being earmarked on land “off the Saltend Roundabout” to the East of Paull Road.
A scheme was proposed by Hull City Council in 2009 to construct a facility at another local site (the former airfield) in the East Riding near to Hedon. It would include:
- A 650 space secure car park
- 25 cycle parking stands
- 6 motor cycle stands
- A terminus building
A planning application on the scheme submitted by Hull City Council to the East Riding Council in April 2010 was withdrawn after planning officers there recommended its refusal.
This time, however, because of other developments taking place in the vicinity of the Saltend Chemicals Park linked to Green Port Hull and the Humber Enterprise Zone, it would seem to increase the likelihood of the new scheme proposal gaining the necessary approvals.
