Opus North and Bridges Fund Management have submitted a planning application to Harrogate Borough Council to transform a vacant 45-acre site near Harrogate.
The site is close to junction 47 of the A1(M) in North Yorkshire.
The new planning application includes 75,000 sq ft of high-tech/hybrid starter units and approximately 430,000 sq ft of logistics and warehouse accommodation for mid-box units.
The developers say the scheme is key for Harrogate and the wider North Yorkshire economy in providing much-needed new employment land that can accommodate both office and industrial space for occupiers, to meet local, regional and national demand.
A contractor will be appointed shortly, allowing the enabling works to commence soon.
Guy Bowden, Partner at Bridges Fund Management, said: “As Harrogate 47 is such an important site with immense potential to make a significant economic contribution to the local area, we are keen to maintain momentum and as such are commencing preparatory works. The work being undertaken will ensure that the plots are ready for construction to begin, which could be as early as summer 2021, and our appointed agents are already in detailed discussions with potential occupiers who have expressed an interest in the scheme.”
Oliver Freer from CBRE’s Northern Planning Team advised. Letting agents are CBRE and Gent Visick.
