Humber Zero Community News

Keeping in touch

Humber Zero will support the decarbonisation of important industry in the Humber region, future-proofing it in an increasingly decarbonised global marketplace and potentially safeguarding tens of thousands of jobs. The project will be essential as we aim to meet Net Zero commitments and it’s going to help keep the Humber region as a leader in industry.

If you live near the Immingham industrial area where Humber Zero will operate, we’ll ensure you are kept informed about the project. As part of this, we will be holding community engagement events and consultation as part of the planning and permitting process. These will take place from early 2022 and details of both in-person and online consultation events will appear on this page.

We will also be looking to take part in community events where you can ask our team questions about the project. If you would like to be kept up to date on the Humber Zero or upcoming events, please bookmark this page or contact us.


Public consultation now closed

The public consultation on the first phase of the Humber Zero project concluded on 7th July. Thanks to everyone who responded and attended the various events held around the area and online.

Next steps

Feedback gathered from this public consultation will be used to inform the development of our proposals where possible. The feedback will be summarised in a Consultation Report.

VPI Immingham LLP and Phillips 66 Limited will then prepare and submit separate planning applications to the Local Planning Authority, North Lincolnshire Council, for the respective carbon capture plants and their associated works. Once the planning applications are submitted, consultees and members of the public will be able to read and comment on the proposals and supporting information (including the Consultation Report and Environmental Statement) on the Council’s planning portal.

It is anticipated that the first planning application will be submitted in Autumn 2022, with decisions being made by the Council in Spring 2023.
