The priorities of the City Plan are to make Hull:
A UK Energy City
Hull’s location on the Humber energy estuary means it is perfectly placed to become a UK hub for new and emerging industries with a focus on renewable energy. Green Port Hull, including the development by Siemens of Europe’s largest wind turbine manufacturing plant at Alexandra Dock is just the first step.
A World Class Visitor Destination
Hull is a gateway to Yorkshire, the UK and to Europe. As UK City of Culture 2017 and through the wider Destination Hull capital programme of major cultural and transport infrastructure projects, Hull will grasp this once-in-a-generation opportunity to create a thriving visitor economy, building on its rich heritage, culture and diversity.
A place of community & opportunity
Hull is a place where everyone matters and where everyone is supported to achieve their very best by:
- ensuring that people get the services they need as early as possible through prevention and early intervention, so helping to build strong, resilient and productive communities;
- providing practical help and advice at times of hardship to make money go further;
- safeguarding the most vulnerable, by offering extra support where needed, so helping people to live independently, leading to a fuller, more rewarding life.
City Leadership Board
Launched in 2013, delivery of the City Plan is overseen by a private-sector-led City Leadership Board chaired by Tim Rix, Managing Director, JR Rix & sons.
The work to develop and implement the City Plan involves a wide range of partners from the public, private and voluntary and community sectors. As it continues to evolve, local people and all who have a stake in Hull’s future will be given the opportunity to contribute their ideas.
