Green light for new £7m Humberside Airport hotel

A new £7m hotel development at Humberside airport has been given the green light by county council planners.

The 100-bedroom property, which is expected to be operated by an international hotel brand, will feature a restaurant, bar and gym facilities.

Work on the development will begin in the coming weeks ahead of a planned opening next summer, reported the Grimsby Telegraph.

The airport currently has only one hotel, the Nightel Humber, which serves offshore workers in the oil, gas and renewable energy sectors. The new property is aimed at tourists and business travellers, with both hotels developed by former offshore worker turned property developer Paul Green.

He said: "The hotel has been a long time in the planning and there has been a huge amount of work gone into it by a lot of different people, so the achieving planning consent is a real milestone for the development.

"I feel it is the right time for a hotel of this nature. As the airport develops and becomes more important both regionally and nationally, it needs a comfortable place for travellers to stay in order to remain competitive, and what we are planning will certainly provide that."

The development has been part funded by a Regional Growth Fund grant, through North Lincolnshire Council, which approved the plans this week.
