PROPOSED IMMINGHAM EASTERN RO-RO TERMINAL DEVELOPMENT SECTION 48 NOTICE

PROPOSED IMMINGHAM EASTERN RO-RO TERMINAL DEVELOPMENT SECTION 48 NOTICE

Published: 27 October 2022

PROPOSED IMMINGHAM EASTERN RO-RO TERMINAL DEVELOPMENT SECTION 48 OF THE PLANNING ACT 2008

REGULATION 4 OF THE INFRASTRUCTURE PLANNING (APPLICATIONS: PRESCRIBED FORMS AND PROCEDURE) REGULATIONS 2009

 

NOTICE PUBLICISING A PROPOSED APPLICATION FOR A DEVELOPMENT CONSENT ORDER

Notice is hereby given that ASSOCIATED BRITISH PORTS ("ABP") of 25 BEDFORD STREET, LONDON, WC2E 9ES intends to make an application to the Secretary of State for Transport under section 37 of the Planning Act 2008 (“the 2008 Act”) for a Development Consent Order (“DCO”) to construct a new three berth Roll-on/Roll-off (“Ro-Ro”) cargo facility in the Port of Immingham, North East Lincolnshire, DN40 2LZ. If constructed, the development, known as the IMMINGHAM EASTERN RO-RO TERMINAL DEVELOPMENT (“IERRT Development”), will be located within the administrative boundary of North East Lincolnshire Council.

The proposed IERRT Development consists of:

Marine works

  • An approach jetty from the shore linked to two floating pontoons appropriately secured in position
  • Two separate finger piers to provide three berths thereby enabling the vessels to berth alongside with their stern ramps resting upon two floating pontoons
  • A capital dredge of the new berth pocket
  • Disposal of dredged material at sea if no beneficial alternative can be identified
  • Possible impact protection measures if required

    Landside

  •  Demolition and redevelopment of a number of existing commercial buildings within the site

  • Improvement of the existing cargo storage areas, including resurfacing and provision of new pavements and associated infrastructure
  • A terminal building and a small welfare building to provide appropriate facilities for terminal operational and administration staff, lorry drivers and passengers
  • A small workshop with fuel station and a UK Border Force building
  • An internal bridge within the site to cross over Robinson Road and the ABP managed transit sidings
  • Related utilities and operational infrastructure
  • Creation of a second entrance lane at the Port’s East Gate
  • Offsite environmental enhancement

ABP is undertaking a supplementary consultation on its proposals for the IERRT Development reflecting a number of refinements which have been made to the scheme following the original statutory consultation in early 2022.

The IERRT Development constitutes an Environmental Impact Assessment (“EIA”) development for the purposes of the Infrastructure Planning (Environmental Impact Assessment) Regulations 2017. ABP is, therefore, required to undertake an Environmental Impact Assessment and will be submitting an Environmental Statement as part of its application for a DCO.

A Preliminary Environmental Information Report (“PEIR”) was published in January 2022 and was the subject of a comprehensive statutory consultation. As part of this further consultation a Supplementary Consultation Report (“SCR”) has been prepared which outlines the refinements made to the scheme as a result of ABP’s ongoing consultation with interested parties since the publication of the PEIR and the scheme’s natural evolution. The PEIR, SCR and related consultation documents will be available to view and download online from 28 October 2022 at: www.abports.co.uk/immroro/consultation.

In accordance with the 2008 Act, ABP is running a formal consultation on the IERRT Development between 28 October and 27 November 2022.
