Developer gets go-ahead to extend industrial park

How the new units will look

Derbyshire-based developer, Clowes Developments, has been granted planning permission by Bolsover District Council for two additional industrial units to be constructed at Castlewood Court.

Earlier this month the group announced it had been given the go-ahead for a new 24,842 sq ft unit which has already been pre-let to CST Industries. This latest announcement will see a further two units at 31,396 sq ft and 12,484 sq ft added to the masterplan. The construction of all three units will see Plot 11 also known as Castlewood Court built out in its entirety.

Current occupiers at the wider Castlewood Business Park include Alloga, Bombardier, Co-Op, Middle Brook Transport and Parker Knoll.

Hannah Bailey, senior surveyor at Clowes Developments, said: “After having built out Castlewood Business Park over the last 10 years, We recognise that the market has been desperately lacking in high quality smaller scale industrial units in the area and therefore we are embracing this opportunity to build speculative units to meet this demand.”

James Richards, development director at Clowes Developments, said: “As the Castlewood Business Park success story continues, we are very happy to have been able to work with Bolsover District Council to secure planning permission for the additional units to complete the plot.

“We firmly believe demand for best in class distribution, manufacturing, and logistical units in a location such as this will remain buoyant. When the economy bounces back, we want to ensure we have the right units available, in the right location to help local, national and international businesses grow and contribute by providing local employment.”
