The Humber Enterprise Zones supports growth in ports, logistics and renewables and is a key tool in achieving regions ambition to become a leading national and international centre for low carbon energy.
The Enterprise Zone sites were designated in two tranches in 2012 and 2016 and comprise more than 40 employment sites in the Humber Region, with individual sites of up to 290ha. These sites constitute the key strategic sites around the Humber Estuary and are in close proximity to key strategic infrastructure such as ports, motorways, airports and motorways on both banks of the Humber Estuary.
