The developer has plans to design and construct units available to purchase or rent ranging in size from 4,000 sq ft  to 100,000 sq ft.

Mike Wrigley at PMW Property, said: “We are looking forward to starting the development and have already received positive demand for the units with the site being in a prominent position.

arketing will start shortly but for any parties who would like to discuss the site, we would be delighted to hear from them to progress their early interest.”

Victor Ktori, head of office at Savills Nottingham, said: “The land at Dove Way provided the purchaser with an excellent opportunity to acquire a prominent roadside site with good access to both the A518 and A50, ideal for a new commercial development. There remains strong demand for freehold industrial space across the Midlands, generating significant interest from occupiers, investors and developers and as a result we were able to secure a fantastic outcome on behalf of our client.”
