Acting on behalf of Glentrool Estates, a property and investment business, Colliers International’s Industrial and Logistics division has been instructed to let Sherburn2, a new 75-acre Logistics and Manufacturing Park with Outline B1/C B2 B8 Planning for 1.25m sq ft in Sherburn in Elmet, Selby, Leeds. This development will deliver bespoke buildings and accelerate the creation of new jobs as a natural extension to the established and successful Sherburn industrial and logistics park.
Planning consent has been granted by Selby District Council on the entire site which, combined with The Local Enterprise Partnership’s Growing Places Fund £2.95 million capital infrastructure loan, has enabled the implementation of the infrastructure works to begin. The first phase, including upgrades to footpaths, cycle ways, roads and highway improvements, is now on underway and scheduled for completion in Autumn 2017.
The strategic location of Sherburn Enterprise Park and the benefits it offers has attracted a number of high-profile occupiers including Debenhams; Kingspan; Eddie Stobart; Sainsburys; Optare Coaches; Legal & General Homes and Ultimata Kitchens.
Robert Whatmuff, Director in the Industrial and Logistics division in Colliers International’s Leeds office said, “Sherburn2 is situated in an excellent area for logistics and manufacturing companies, within minutes of Junction 42 of the A1(M), close to Leeds, the M1 and the M62, the coastal ports of Hull and Grimsby, and regional rail and airports. With the high-calibre neighbouring occupiers at this enterprise park, this location is proven and successful.
“The site offers huge flexibility, the current master plan shows units ranging from 35,000 sq ft up to 575,000 sq ft but the site can comfortably accommodate a single footprint of a 1m sq ft cross docked facility. There will be buildings to suit a wide variety of small to medium sized enterprises as well as larger manufacturing and distribution companies.”
Sherburn2 has the benefit of outline planning approval for 1.25 million sq ft of development comprising B2 General Industrial, B8 Storage and Distribution with B1C Ancillary Offices. Plots and buildings will be structured to individual companies’ requirements, including warehouses, external areas and office accommodation.
Jeremy Nolan, Director from Glentrool Estates added, “As Sherburn2 is wholly owned by Glentrool Estates, our project team has the freedom and the flexibility to swiftly move to meet the needs of occupiers’ individual requirements on site. This development reinforces our region’s strength in manufacturing and logistics and will provide 1,000’s of jobs for local residents.”
