A 125m-tall wind turbine and a bid to extend permission for an aggregate recycling plant are among the latest planning applications dealt with in Hull and the East Riding.

Planning applications lodged with or decided by Hull City Council and East Riding Council include the wind turbine at Hull's King George Dock. Yarrow Aggregates Ltd's bid to extend permission to operate at its Leven site is set to go before East Riding Council's Planning Committee.

Decisions taken on planning applications include approving plans for a 24-unit apartment block in Bridlington. Permission was also granted to convert a Hornsea house into a holiday let.


Wind turbine

Hull port operator Associated British Ports (ABP) has applied to build a wind turbine at King George Dock which will be up to 125m tall. The structure would stand at the dock's northern gateway and have three blades.

Planning documents stated it was part of efforts to power the port site with renewable energy in light of climate change. It is a twin application that is being submitted alongside one for a 125m wind turbine on the East Riding side of the docks.

Aggregate recycling business

Yarrow Aggregates Ltd has lodged a bid with East Riding Council to extend the current permission to operate its site at Little Catwick Quarry from July this year to 2039. The application stated the continued operation of the site would allow sand and gravel to be produced to meet local demand.

But 27 objections have been lodged against the plans over the effects on the local community and environment include from noise, air and pollution. The application is set to be heard at East Riding Council's Planning Committee on Thursday, May 30.

Hornsea holiday home

East Riding Council has granted permission for the conversion of a house in Hornsea's Wimbrel Avenue into a holiday let. The property has five bedrooms and is located to the south east of Hornsea Mere, near the town centre and the seafront.

The application stated it was in a suitable location with off-street parking. It added it would help support the tourism industry of a popular East Riding destination.

Bridlington apartment block

Permission has been granted to build one 24-unit apartment block and another made up of six two rooms in Bridlington's Springfield Avenue. The 24-room building will house one bedroom apartments while the smaller will be home to two-bedroom units.

The application stated it would provide viable quality housing for rent in the town. Two comments in support were lodged but one objector claimed it would lead to an increase in traffic.
