About the South Humber Collection
The South Humber Collection, North Lincolnshire is a £30 million pound regeneration scheme spearheaded by the South Humber Bank Partnership. Members of the partnership include North Lincolnshire Council, the Environment Agency, Natural England, Lincolnshire Wildlife Trust, English Heritage, the Queen Street Preservation Trust and the Waterside Artists' Co-operative. Additional funding and support was also received from Yorkshire Forward and the Heritage Lottery Fund.
The partnership has not only revitalised buildings but also acres of land and is working towards consolidating the area's growing status as a centre of excellence for environmental and cultural tourism and as a vibrant place to live and work.
Since the end of the 1990s the partnership has revived an area on the south bank of the River Humber including an area of contaminated land, some deteriorating buildings and issues with rising sea levels. This regeneration of the area has turned it into a vibrant habitat for all kinds of wildlife and most of all an exciting visitor destination that is going from strength to strength.
The hard work hasn’t gone unnoticed, the work of the partnership has been recognised by The British Urban Regeneration Association (BURA) with the project winning a BURA award in 2007.
The award identifies and promotes best practise in regeneration, guiding and inspiring the sector's evolution and exploring the social, economic and environmental issues involved for all parties.
