South Humber Industrial Investment Programme

Britain’s best industrial base

SHIIP (South Humber Industrial Investment Programme) is an ambitious £42-million project, which represents the largest such investment of its kind ever made in North East Lincolnshire. Work is already progressing well to transform vast areas of land along the South Humber bank into highly attractive areas where business and industry will want to invest.

The decade-long project, managed by North East Lincolnshire Council’s regeneration partners ENGIE, is best broken down into three main areas:

Development sites: The focus here is the creation of the ‘ready-made’ Stallingborough Business Park and another five Enterprise Zones along the South Humber Bank. Together the area is 189 hectares (467 acres).

A new Humber Link Road: To open-up the Enterprise Zones that fall within SHIIP, there is a need for improved highway infrastructure between the Port of Immingham and Grimsby. This need is being satisfied by the construction of the new £8-million road.

Ecological Mitigation project – the jewel in SHIIP’s crown and a European first: Once complete this part of SHIIP gives North East Lincolnshire a major competitive advantage when trying to attract new business and industry to the South Humber bank. This, the largest single mitigation project of its kind to take place in Europe, provides a unique opportunity for businesses to make their plans, knowing that the appropriate amount of land has already been offset to mitigate the effect of their build on the local habitat and wildlife.

The whole: 120ha of strategic mitigation land; 2.5km of new adoptable highway; 489,000sqm built floor space; 195ha of developable land 60ha of which is serviced.

The South Humber programme has been co-funded through the Greater Lincolnshire Local Enterprise Partnership, the Humber Local Enterprise Partnership and North East Lincolnshire Council.

A MULTI-MILLION-POUND highway scheme to create access to Council owned employment land, with the ultimate goal of facilitating the development of further prime development land, starts on site in January 2020.

Part funded by the Humber Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP), this project has been supported with £1.6m from the Government’s Local Growth Fund, secured by the Humber LEP and part of the Government’s commitment to the Northern Powerhouse, this is part of the £42million South Humber Industrial Investment Programme, (SHIIP) – the most ambitious industrial project ever embarked on by the authority.

The work, part of the most ambitious industrial project of its kind in the area, involves a six-month closure of a 1km section of the A1173 between the Stallingborough interchange of the A180 and the ‘CATCH’ roundabout.

You can see the plans for the scheme below.

Stallingborough Interchange Development – Diversion Route The A1173 will be closed from the A180 to Kiln Lane for the duration of the highway works except for critical vehicles. Traffic from Kiln Lane heading to the A180 will be diverted via Manby Road and the A160.
