SHIIP (South Humber Industrial Investment Programme)

North East Lincolnshire Council has an Economic Strategy in place which seeks to ensure that the right conditions for growth are provided and it can achieve one of its key priorities to create a stronger economy in the borough.

One of the key themes within the Economic Strategy is the creation of sustainable infrastructure that enables and supports growth, including the provision of new strategic employment sites, all of which will help deliver the Economic Strategy and the growth ambitions set out in the new Local Plan. The programme which will deliver this is the South Humber Industrial Investment Programme (SHIIP).

Over the past two years SHIIP has secured £7.7million of external funding in addition to council capital investment to deliver a number of key projects on the South Humber Bank to provide new infrastructure to facilitate economic development.

SHIIP will see a number of key projects delivered by the council working in partnership with ENGIE over a 5-10 year period. The programme will create 90 hectares of additional employment land, create 4,000 new jobs and generate £200m within the local economy over the next 25 years.

There are three key projects which will be covered in detail at the event; the Stallingborough employment zone,  South Humber Bank Link Road and the strategic ecological mitigation project.

Key elements of the programme include:

Stallingborough Employment Zone – Located off the Stallingborough Interchange on Kiln Lane, the proposed 64 hectare site will potentially support up to 3,959 jobs boosting both employment and the local economy. This part of the programme is supported by the Humber Local Enterprise Partnership with £2.6m of external funding provided by the Humber Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP).

Key project dates:

Planning submission - Early 2018
Construction start - Mid 2018
Project complete -  Mid 2019

South Humber Bank Link Road – A proposed strategic highway linking the ports of Grimsby and Immingham via Moody Lane, Grimsby and Hobson Way, Stallingborough. This road would facilitate development of allocated employment sites on the South Humber Bank and has the potential to support up to 922 jobs.
