7,500 jobs for Hull

Details of an ambitious plan aimed at creating 7,500 jobs in Hull over the next decade have been announced today.

Due to be officially launched early next year, the so called "City Plan" will promote Hull as the UK's Energy City.

It's hoped that a positive decision by Siemens over its proposed wind turbine assembly plant at Alexandra Dock will trigger a boom in renewable energy jobs.

It's also planned to turn Hull into a major cultural destination, with projects including a new international art gallery and a new riverside terminal for cruise ships.
