Go ahead given for 1.5 million sq ft industrial and logistics development

Property business, Harworth Group, has secured a resolution to grant planning permission for the development of a major rail-connected industrial and logistics hub at its 185-acre Gascoigne Interchange site.

The resolution was agreed by North Yorkshire Council’s Strategic Planning Committee.

Approved plans will see development of up to 1.5 million sq ft of industrial and logistics space, in line with Harworth’s strategy to increase its direct development of industrial and logistics space.

The scheme has the potential to deliver up to £190m worth of gross development value (GDV).

Once complete, it will deliver seven units, ranging from 57,000 sq ft to 1 million sq ft, with Harworth expecting to start on site in 2025.

The brownfield land intended for this project is one of Harworth’s next-generation of development sites and is in Selby, to the east of Leeds and next to Sherburn Industrial Estate.

Lynda Shillaw, chief executive at Harworth, said: “Our development at Gascoigne Interchange is another example of Harworth’s unique ability to identify, acquire and transform brownfield sites to generate value, create jobs and increase investment in the region.

“This development complements our extensive pipeline of industrial and logistics sites and we continue to see high demand for high-specification strategically-connected Grade A industrial space.”
