The site, located south-west of J47 of the A1M in North Yorkshire, has been allocated as the main strategic employment site in Harrogate Borough Council’s newly adopted Local Plan, due to its excellent access to the transport network. It benefits from an existing planning permission for over half a million square feet of development for employment uses.
Opus North and Bridges will now work on a revised masterplan for the site. A new outline planning application that will be submitted for consideration later in the year.
“With our joint venture partner, we are in a position to bring this development to life and are looking forward to continuing our discussions with both the Council and local stakeholders to create an exemplar development to address the local and regional shortages of employment space,” Opus North development director Ryan Unsworth said.
CBRE acted for Opus North and Bridges, while Gent Visick represented the vendor, a private individual.
