A £27.5m scheme to renovate the maritime attractions in Hull has been unveiled by the city’s council.

The Maritime Museum, North End Shipyard, Arctic Corsair and Spurn Lightship will all be transformed under the plans and a public consultation has been put out with renderings on display in the Trinity Market for Hull residents to see.

The Dock Office Chambers will also be revamped under the plans, while a new maritime route that will guide visitors from Queen Victoria Square to the River Hull will be created.

Hull City Council expects the project to bring in 300,000 visitors to the city and generate £2.9m income. The council has applied for £15m from the National Lottery Heritage Fund (NLHF) for the project, while it will front up £10m from its own coffers.

"We are determined to drive forward further regeneration, making Hull a better place to live, learn and work," said Hull City Council's director of regeneration Mark Jones.

"If we successfully get the NLHF funding we have applied for, we expect to begin construction later this year."

Under the plans, the Arctic Corsair, which was Hull's last sidewinder trawler, will be moved to a dry dock at the North End Shipyard, thus merging the two attractions into one larger one.

The council has also drawn up a separate plan to add to Queens Gardens with a new public art space area.
