Hull City Council has published a decision record that will allow the council to open a tender to construct a permanent wet dock for the Spurn Lightship.
A successful funding bid from National Highways for £1,044,725 will enable works to take place. The main works to create the new dock will be the sinking of five piles to create mooring points for the ship.
The restoration of the Spurn Lightship is part of Hull Maritime, a locally led project funded by Hull City Council and National Lottery Heritage Fund. Work to restore the lightship will be complete this autumn and the ship will move to a temporary position on Hull Maritime until the new dock is completed in early 2023.
The procurement exercise will open in the coming weeks, with work expected to start on site in the autumn.
