Plans revealed for up to 100 jobs at former B&M in York
A Yorkshire property investor has announced plans for a commercial scheme that could create up to 100 new jobs.
Marrtree Investments, based in Harrogate, has acquired the former B&M store at Clifton Moor in York, with plans to submit an application for a commercial scheme at the site.
The company, which has a portfolio of more than 20 business parks across the north of England, purchased the 2.4 acre site from property investment firm New River, and has said that its plans could create up to 100 new jobs.
The former B&M store was burned down in a fire in 2018.
William Marshall, director of Marrtree Investments, commented: “We are clear that, subject to obtaining a satisfactory planning outcome on this site, the development will consist of very high quality business units that York can be proud of, and we’re looking forward to engaging with City of York planners to ensure the development will be of significant benefit to the city.
“This Clifton Moor site offers us a significant opportunity to develop the modern high-spec accommodation that is synonymous with Marrtree developments, and of which the York market is in short supply.”
Fellow Marrtree Investments director George Marshall said: “As a business we are all about creating employment hubs in the north of England, providing the kind of modern and high-quality space that people actively want to work in.
“Accessibility is also crucial and Clifton Moor is well located for road links, with dualling and other improvements planned for the outer ring road in the next couple of years.
“As we emerge from the challenges of the pandemic and look to the future, it’s more important than ever that we ensure our new developments have longevity and create a built environment everyone can be proud of. That is what we plan to do here at Clifton Moor.”
