In his election statement published on HU12 Online, Kevan Hough comments on his work in regenerating the area as a Withernsea Town Councillor and member of community groups. In particular the local fishing and shellfish industry is highlighted as a key issue:
“I have been working with The Regeneration Partnership on a number of projects which are about to bear fruit. Building work will start soon on the Commercial Fishing Compound… About four years ago I submitted a proposal for a Lobster Hatchery modelled on The National Lobster Hatchery in Padstow. The Regeneration Partnership has taken the idea on and East Riding of Yorkshire Council is keen to ensure that the project is delivered in our area.” Kevan Hough, Election Statement
