New business park plans revealed for Leicestershire

Brackley Property Developments (BPD) has revealed plans to develop a new business park in Leicestershire.

The developer has submitted a reserved matters application to Harborough District Council for the first phase of development at Elm Business Park in Broughton Astley.

The scheme proposes the development of industrial and warehouse units ranging in size from approximately 8,000 – 50,000 sq ft on a 17-acre site adjacent to Broughton Astley Golf Complex.

Units will be available on a design and build basis, which will provide occupiers with the opportunity to tailor the size and specification to their requirements. The largest building which can be accommodated is around 120,000 sq ft, subject to layout.

Outline planning consent was granted in December 2020 for a mix of uses including industrial, office, retail and leisure.

Stephen Pedrick-Moyle, managing director of BPD said: “We are expecting planning approval for phase one towards the end of the year but we are already engaging with occupiers to discuss potential requirements for the site. This is with a view to starting construction during the first quarter of 2022.”
