Hull City Council focuses on 'safeguarding investments' flowing into city

The leader of Hull City Council has released a statement saying the council is focusing on ensuring investment will continue flowing into the city after the country leaves the EU.

Following the referendum result, Hull City Council remains completely focused on safeguarding the huge investments and developments now flowing into the city.

In particular, we want to secure the long-term future of our new, green energy industries and to ensure that Hull is well placed to maximise the potential of its year as UK City of Culture.

As a major international trading port, our relationship with Europe is critical to maximising the prosperity of the city, Yorkshire and the Humber and, indeed, the UK.

Whilst we must wait to see what the timetable and negotiations around the UK’s exit will bring, we are determined, working with our businesses and other stakeholders, to do everything possible to ensure that Hull maintains the momentum of regeneration and job creation that is now happening in the city.

– Councillor Stephen Brady
