Yorkshire gains 2.8m sq ft logistics scheme

A former Yorkshire colliery is to be redeveloped as a 2.8 million sq ft rail-linked logistics scheme.

The plans for a 185-acre site at Sherburn in Elmet, near Leeds, include up to 2 million sq ft of space at Harworth's Gascoigne Wood site, with a further 800,000 sq ft at Skelton Grange, a former power station.

Sherburn is already a popular logistics location with a rail connection through the Sherburn Rail Freight Terminal, and close links to the A1(M) and the M62.

Harworth’s plans for Skelton Grange would see the development of up to 800,000 sq ft of industrial & logistics space across up to five units, ranging in size from 126,000 sq ft to 202,000 sq ft. 

All buildings are to be developed to achieve a minimum of BREEAM Very Good standard and EPC Rating A, while maximising opportunities for the buildings to be net zero carbon in construction and operation.

Planning consent is expected during 2022. 

“The proposals at Gascoigne Wood seek to capitalise on the unique rail connectivity and the logistics scheme has the ability to attract major inward investment and deliver supply to meet the projected demand arising from rail freight growth in the UK,” said Chris Davidson, Associate Director for Major Projects at Harworth.
