Carter Towler and AWS say four additional industrial units are to be built at South Kirkby Business Park, by developer Marshall CDP.

Planning permission has just been granted for four high specification industrial units ranging from 10,000 sq ft to 20,000 sq ft, bringing the total number of properties at the new industrial park to 12.

Carter Towler’s industrial agency surveyor, Hazel Cooper, said: “The success of this speculative scheme is testament to Marshall CDP’s commitment to providing the best possible industrial facilities.

“These next four will be the final phase and we have already had a lot of interest from businesses looking to purchase and rent.

“The quality of the units, the location and the Enterprise Zone financial incentives together make a very compelling package for manufacturers, warehousing and logistics companies looking for space.

“The construction company has moved onto the site and will start erecting the buildings’ structural steel frames in October. They will be ready for occupation in March 2022.”

Each of the units which consist of steel portal frames with clad elevations will have 7m clear working eaves, electric ground floor loading doors, fully fitted office accommodation, self-contained yards, loading and parking facilities.

South Kirkby Enterprise Zone is close to Leeds, Wakefield, Doncaster and Barnsley. It is adjacent to the new A628 link road which connects directly with the A1 and M1 motorways.

Nick Arundel, of joint agents AWS, added: “The business park has established itself remarkably quickly, there’s an excellent range of businesses already thriving here including Brittains Beverages, CPS Lifts, Galvanise UK, PHS and SkyNet Worldwide Services.

“I’m sure it won’t be long before we’ll be announcing details of the next business to move onto the estate.”
