Yorkshire land and property regenerator eyes up new developments with planning submission

A Yorkshire land and property regenerator has submitted plans for two new industrial developments close to Leeds.

Harworth Group plc, has submitted plans for 2.8 million sq ft of industrial and logistics space.The plans comprise up to 2 million sq ft of space at Harworth’s Gascoigne Wood site, with a further 800,000 sq ft at Skelton Grange.

Andrew Blackshaw, COO, at Harworth, commented: “Our planned developments at Gascoigne Wood and Skelton Grange would meet the increasing demand for Grade A industrial and logistics assets in this part of Yorkshire, supporting jobs and further investment locally.”

Chris Davidson, associate director, at Harworth, added: “These exciting new plans present unique opportunities to bring additional employment space to the region.

“The proposals at Gascoigne Wood seek to capitalise on the unique rail connectivity and the site has the ability to attract major inward investment and deliver supply to meet the projected demand arising from rail freight growth in the UK.

“At Skelton Grange, we will provide up to 800,000 sq ft of industrial and logistics space with great connectivity to Leeds city centre.”

Both of these developments would add to Harworth’s direct development pipeline for industrial and logistics assets and help to transition its investment portfolio to Grade A. These are key tenets of Harworth’s recently announced strategy to double the size of its business over the next five to seven years.

All buildings are to be developed to achieve a minimum of BREEAM Very Good standard and EPC Rating A, while maximising opportunities for the buildings to be net zero carbon in construction and operation.

Planning determinations for all four applications are expected during 2022.
