Hornsea is a traditional small seaside town (population 8,500) in East Riding of Yorkshire, approximately 16 miles from the City of Hull. Known the world over for its innovative pottery it still draws collectors and enthusiasts to its small museum which has a dedicated Hornsea Pottery section. It is now synonymous with the world’s largest off shore wind turbine array (supplied by Siemens Green Port Hull), which is being constructed in the North Sea (DONG Energy). Hornsea is also famed for having the first retail outlet village in Britain on the site of the old pottery and is the eastern terminus of the Trans Pennine Trail.
An ambitious innovative public art project bringing Hornsea Pottery designs to life in the public realm will be launched in October and a £4.2m scheme on the South Promenade will see new visitor facilities and improvements to commercial and leisure boat facilities creating a welcoming gateway to the sea front in 2019.
The ‘Animating Hornsea’s Seafront’ Plan developed through the Coastal Community Team (a sub group of the regeneration partnership) aims through a range of interventions to enhance the attractiveness of the mile long sea front and strengthen the town’s visitor economy.
