Lib Dem councillors Adam Williams and Linda Chambers are raising concerns from residents living in Victoria Dock, near the site of the proposed cruise terminal about the Council’s plans.
Many residents in the area have contacted Adam and Linda to express their concerns about the development. In particular they are concerned about noise and increased traffic on already congested roads.
Councillor Adam Williams said: "While bringing HMS Illustrious to Hull and having a cruise ship terminal may be good for the city, this is completely the wrong location for it. There are also serious questions around the costs of scheme, estimated at over £16million, that need answering."
"Victoria Dock is a residential area. There are no roads to this proposed site and traffic is already congested at that end of Victoria Dock. Added to this, the potential noise from the terminal and HMS Illustrious would be a real problem for local residents. I have put these issues to officers at the Council and want to make sure local residents are listened to."
"Other locations such as Albert Dock or near to the P&O Ferry Terminal should be explored,” added Councillor Linda Chambers. “Those making the decisions must take resident’s concerns on board."
