Plans for a major project to place Hull’s 800 years of maritime history at the heart of further regeneration are to be unveiled.
The ambitious proposals for the Hull: Yorkshire Maritime City project will go on display at Hull Trinity Market from Thursday 25 April and members of the public will have the opportunity to view, comment and provide feedback to help shape the plans further.
The five key maritime treasures right in the heart of Hull city centre include - the Arctic Corsair, North End Shipyard, Spurn Lightship, Dock Office Chambers and the striking Hull Maritime Museum.
The project will protect, preserve and celebrate Hull’s global role and international story as a maritime city, increasing access and understanding for future generations.
The ‘story so far’ roadshow will showcase these never-seen-before artists’ and architects’ drawings and computer generated visuals, showings how the plans will transform the city’s most maritime treasures.
Mark Jones MBE, Director of Regeneration, said: “We are excited to be sharing these transformative plans that reconnect our maritime venues and sites that all have a deep history that is rooted in Hull. These proposals have been two years in making and been developed with feedback, consultations from the public and specialists from the industry, in order to achieve the very best to create a high quality visitor experience for its residents and visitors alike.
“Now, we want to share these plans to gain further input from the public to assist with developing them further. This investment will continue to drive this thriving maritime city forward.
“We hope everyone will be excited by the plans and get behind this programme of continued investment.”
The public will have the opportunity to view, comment and speak to council staff on the proposals at Hull Trinity Market until Thursday 2 May and will be on site at the exhibition from 10am to 3pm daily.
