Plans submitted in £42m Hull flood defence scheme

A planning application for flood defence work at Victoria Pier has been submitted to Hull City Council.

The application submitted by the Environment Agency is part of the £42 million Humber: Hull Frontage Flood Defence Improvements scheme, which was granted permission in December 2018.

Now permission is being sought to amend the scheme at Victoria Pier.

The proposed work would see existing steel sheet piles replaced and higher flood walls constructed along this section of the Humber frontage.

The application is due to be heard by Hull City Council planning committee in October. If approved, the Environment Agency intends to begin work in December.
