Commercial property developer Sterling Capitol has won planning for a 190,000 sq ft extension to its Capitol Park Barnsley in South Yorkshire.
Outline planning permission has now been given for the demolition of the existing bungalow at Higham Lane and construction of two warehouse units of 84,000 sq ft and 105,000 sq ft suitable.
Paul Beckett, head of development at Sterling Capitol, commented: “We believe that there will be strong demand for these new units, given the proximity to Junction 37 of the M1 and the proven location of Capitol Park, Barnsley. South Yorkshire is now a favoured region for distribution and logistics, which gives us confidence that this extension to Capitol Park will be a great success.”
Planning specialists Peacock & Smith and The Harris Partnership advised.
Knight Frank have been appointed to market the scheme.
Iain McPhail of Knight Frank said: “There remains a good level of demand in the area and the planning consent has come at an opportune time to capitalise on current market conditions.”
