Established in April 2014 our board supports the development of the strategy for the sustainable development of the Humber that creates the right environment for businesses to grow and make an attractive proposition for investment.

Part of the group work is overseeing the development of a 25-year Humber Spatial Plan and mitigation/compensation plan, which will map out the development land as a blue print to the area, which will be a useful tool marketing the region to investors.

The Investment and Regulation Board meets bi-monthly.

The group is made up of representatives from local authorities, statutory agencies and businesses.

The Humber Spatial Plan

To make sure that we grasp these great opportunities, we need to put in place the right conditions for growth. This partly involves clearly setting out our offer along with our priorities for growth and the spatial solutions to deliver them. The purpose of the Humber Spatial Plan is to draw together the key spatial priorities across the Humber which will facilitate this ambition alongside other strategically significant forms of development such as new housing and key environmental assets and challenges.
