ABLE HUMBER PORTS LIMITED NOTICE

ABLE HUMBER PORTS LIMITED NOTICE

Published: 15 April 2021

ABLE HUMBER PORTS LIMITED

SECTION 153 OF THE PLANNING ACT 2008

REGULATION 14 OF THE INFRASTRUCTURE PLANNING (CHANGES TO, AND REVOCATION OF, DEVELOPMENT CONSENT ORDERS) REGULATIONS 2011
(AS AMENDED)

NOTICE OF A PROPOSED APPLICATION TO MAKE A MATERIAL CHANGE TO THE FOLLOWING DEVELOPMENT CONSENT ORDER:

THE ABLE MARINE ENERGY PARK DEVELOPMENT CONSENT ORDER 2014 (S.I. 2014/2935)

NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that Able Humber Ports Limited of Ogier House, The Esplanade, St Helier, Jersey, JE4 9WG (“the Applicant”) and whose UK Asset Manager is Able UK Limited, Able House, Billingham Reach Industrial Estate, Billingham TS23 1PX, intends to make an application (“the proposed Application”) to the Secretary of State for the Department for Transport, for a material change to be made to the Able Marine Energy Park Development Consent Order 2014 (“the DCO”).

The proposed Application seeks a material change to the DCO that authorised the Able Marine Energy Park, a 1,279 metre quay on the south bank of the River Humber in North Lincolnshire, along with associated development including onshore facilities for the manufacture and storage of marine energy infrastructure and a compensatory habitat on the north bank.  The amendment seeks to achieve the following—

(a)    a realignment of the proposed quay (within its existing limits of deviation) to remove a berth pocket at the southern end and introduce a setback at the northern end;
(b)    changes to the construction methodology to allow the relieving slab at the rear of the quay to be piled at the surface or to be omitted, and the use of anchor piles instead of flap anchors;
(c)    consequential changes to dredge deposits where dredged materials may no longer be used in the construction of the associated works; and
(d)    unrelated to the quay changes, the realignment of a footpath diversion to the north west of the site to go round the end of a railway track instead of crossing it.

The Applicant considers that the changes may constitute environmental impact assessment development and, therefore, an Environmental Statement will accompany the Application.
