Four thousand jobs have been secured on the south bank of the Humber, following a long running dispute between two companies over a piece of land.
Able UK and Associated British Ports have been locked in disagreement over whether a huge site building wind turbines should be built, or whether a deep sea jetty aimed at attracting bigger ships should get the go ahead instead. Kate Hemingway reports.
Associated British Ports says it is "disappointed" with the Parliamentary Joint Committee's decision to allow Able UK to develop a green energy plant in Killingholme.
A dispute over land development which threatened to sink plans for a £450 million pound renewable energy plant has ended after a government joint committee hearing.
The row centred on an 11 actre site at Killingholme, known as the Killingholme triangle owned by Associated British Ports who wanted to build a deep sea jetty there.
But Able Uk who are developing the surrounding Able Marine Energy Park which makes offshore wind turbines wanted to compulsory purchase it.
They say their plans will create four thousand new jobs for North Lincolnshire. But after taking their dispute to the Commons ABP's petition to block the purchase order was thrown out.
A special commons committee will give its verdict today on whether opposition to a new marine energy park should be allowed to continue.
Port Operator ABP is using a rare system at Westminster against ABLE UK's plans the develop the site in North Lincolnshire
The MP for Cleethorpes, Martin Vickers, says he wants to ensure parliament decides quickly on the future of a renewable energy project on the south bank of the Humber.
The port operator ABP is using a special commons process to object to plans for the development at North Killingholme.
It wants to develop its own deep water jetty in an area where another company, Able UK already has permission to build a marine energy park creating four thousand jobs.
Vickers says he is concerned about potential delays:
The port operator, Association of British Ports, is to ask parliament to decide on the future of two projects at North Killingholme on the south bank of the Humber.
It wants to build its own deep water jetty in an area where another company has already been given permission to build a marine energy park.
Last month Able UK said the port operator was putting its plans in jeopardy, threatening the creation of thousands of jobs.
Fiona Dwyer has more on go-ahead for a huge renewable energy project on the South bank of the Humber. The company responsible, Able UK, say it will create thousands of jobs. The £450 million project will be built close to North Killingholme in North Lincolnshire.
A Department for Transport spokesperson has released a statement about the delay in approving the £450 million marine energy park in North Lincolnshire.
They were concerned over the habitat of the local wildlife, which they say has now been satisfied.
