Plans have been unveiled for a 500,000 sq ft Yorkshire logistics development.
Keyland Developments, the property trading arm of Kelda Group and sister-company to Yorkshire Water, has unveiled plans for a major new industrial and business park on a 57 acre former water treatment works site in West Yorkshire.
The former North Bierley Waste Water Treatment Works is north of the M62 and the east of the M606 in West Yorkshire.
The developers say the scheme is intended to meet a sharp fall in the supply of newly-built floorspace in the region, particularly along the M62 corridor.
A planning application will be made to Kirkless council.
Peter Garrett, managing director of Keyland Developments, said; “The chronic shortage of quality industrial accommodation within the region has been well documented and the creation of this new park is intended to address that and also deliver a significant number of new jobs and expansion opportunities to the local area.”
Mike Dove, partner at Dove Haigh Phillips, and an advisor on the scheme, said: “With such a strong location on the M62 corridor, this scheme will inevitably draw in regional investment which is extremely positive news.”
