A 128-acre site close to the Port of Goole is to be developed for logistics and distribution. The latest decision ends a development journey that began in 2008.
Planners have given the final go-ahead to the development on two sites next to Junction 36 of the M62 motorway.
The 96-acre Goole 36 site will be promoted for design-and-build development by the government’s Homes & Communities Agency, whilst the 32-acre Capitol Park site will be developed by Leeds-based Sterling Capitol. This offers design and build development opportunities, together with retail units on the northern end of the site by the M62.
Occupiers at Capitol Park Goole already include Tesco, Drax and Guardian Glass.
The enterprise zone site is close to the ports of Goole, Grimsby, Immingham and Hull.
Mike Heydecke, director of Sterling Capitol, said: “Together, Goole 36 and Capitol Park will include a mix of industrial property and warehouse units, together with retail and leisure facilities and car showrooms – plus a 100-bed hotel. The 2.14 million sq ft site has direct access to the M62 and the Port of Goole and sits within the Humber Enterprise Zone with potential for a dedicated rail link.”
