Project Name: Hornsea Commercial Boat Compound RIBA Stage D
Organisation: East Riding of Yorkshire Council
Hornsea Boat Compound has reached maximum capacity. The current layout of the compound and adjacent car park creates potentially dangerous clashes between fishing/leisure boats and tractors and the visitors and users of the South Promenade. Visitor facilities at this key entrance point to Hornsea sea front are poor. A Feasibility Study (2013) details the potential to develop the tourism offer and support the existing fishing industry. Proposals include: an extension to the leisure boat compound (for additional boats) and the commercial compound (for additional storage and maintenance areas) an educational space (for local and national groups); visitor facilities (including a café, small-scale retail and viewing areas). These proposals will be taken forward working with a user group and other local organisations, to RIBA stage D (planning) together with a full business plan in order to be in a position to apply for external funding to deliver the scheme.
