THE OPEN HEARINGS into a major infrastructure project affecting this area have taken place recently, and recordings are available on the National Infrastructure Planning Website.
The plans involve the construction of a Marine Energy Park near to Killingholme on the South Bank of the Humber by Able UK, and the creation of a new wildlife area, as an ecological compensation scheme on the North Bank of the Humber, in the Parish of Paull, near to Keyingham which includes Cherry Cobb Sands and Old Little Humber Farm.
Cherry Cobb Sands is considered to be prime farmland and is already recognised as a wildlife area and contains sites which are considered of archaeological and historic significance.
