Nigel Adams MP & Jeremy Nolan, of Glentrool, on the site
Work is underway to create a £105 million North Yorkshire business park.
Property developer Glentrool Estates Group is transforming a 75-acre site at Junction 42 of the A1 in Sherburn-in-Elmet.
Named Sherburn2, the site is next to the existing Sherburn Park, whose occupiers include Debenhams, Sainsbury’s, Optare, Eddie Stobart, Kingspan and Legal & General Homes.
The project was kick-started with £2.95m infrastructure facility from the York, North Yorkshire and East Riding Enterprise Partnership and Government’s Growing Places’ Fund to help boost the economy.
Jeremy Nolan, a director at Glentrool, said: “The success of Sherburn as a destination for high-quality occupiers has underlined the strength of the location, both in terms of the labour force and transport links. Now Sherburn2 will add to that success.
“Our development, which is already attracting strong interest from potential occupiers, will lead to significant inward investment – both during the construction phase over the course of the next few years and for many years to come.”
The first phase of work will involve the building of a bridge at the site’s entrance and making sure the infrastructure is in place for a range of units measuring from 35,000 sq ft to 575,000sq ft.
Nigel Adams, MP for Selby and Ainsty, said: “This development stands to reaffirm the Selby District is very much open for business and I’m pleased the project has already received significant interest from potential occupiers. I am also delighted the project has been made possible by the government’s Growing Places Fund and that it has had the full backing of the District Council throughout.”
