Business park nears full capacity as logistics company takes next spot

The second-to-last unit at Daniel Platts Business Park in Stoke-on-Trent has been leased to a national logistics company.

On behalf of Stoke-on-Trent City Council, Harris Lamb has leased units G-I, a 12,195 sq ft space, to Evri, leaving only one property still available at the site.

Clowes Developments completed construction of the business park, located off Brownhills Road in Tunstall, in August 2020 during the height of the Covid-19 pandemic. The site was then occupied by the NHS as part of the UK’s vaccination rollout.

Following the NHS’s departure, Harris Lamb began marketing the units.

Mike Burr, of Harris Lamb’s commercial agency team, said: “Daniel Platts Business Park is one of the latest developments within the Ceramic Valley Enterprise Zone, a scheme which offers eligible occupiers a range of benefits including savings on Business Rates for up to three years, but the timing of the completion of this site meant that as a result of the Covid pandemic, there were delays before we were able to begin to seek occupiers.

“As one of the UK’s leading logistics companies, Evri was seeking a well-appointed site which offered excellent nationwide access links, and the estate met those needs thanks to its proximity to Junctions 15 and 16 of the M6 Motorway and the A50, thereby providing access to Derby and the M1. 

Councillor Jane Ashworth, leader of Stoke-on-Trent City Council, said: “Our Ceramic Valley Enterprise Zone is one of the most successful Enterprise Zones in the UK so it is great that another national company has chosen to base itself at this key site in Stoke-on- Trent. We are looking forward to welcoming more businesses to the city in the near future to help create new jobs and opportunities for local people.”
