Housing developers wanted to take the urban living project forward
The initial stages of seeking a development partner to bring forward the regeneration of Alexandra Docks are now under way.
As previously reported, the site, behind the newly renovated Garth Lane waterfront area, has been earmarked by the Council for urban housing.
This area was identified for homes in Grimsby’s Town Centre Masterplan, which is supported by Homes England, and is cited as an ideal location given the water nearby and the improvements that have already taken place.
Preliminary Market Consultation (PMC) is currently underway through YORtender to allow potential developers to get in touch and explore what the Council wants and offer ideas on what could be delivered on this site and other potential sites around the town.

As part of this exercise, the Council will be holding a “Meet the Buyer” online event on 25th July at 2pm to discuss the project with potential developers. As this will be a live session, there will also be time for questions. Potential developers can request to attend this through YORtender.
Cllr Philip Jackson, leader of the council with responsibilities for the economy, net zero, skills and housing, said:
“The main objective of this work is to create a place that connects the town and its community with its waterside, creating a fantastic urban living environment that’s kind to the planet.
“There’s a long way to go yet, and developments of this scale don’t happen overnight. But we are working to improve the town centre as a whole and this is part of that vision. Step-by-step we want to change how our town centre is used and enjoyed as a whole.”
