Yorkshire redevelopment gets go-ahead

Planning consent has been granted for a new redevelopment in Yorkshire which is set to deliver 1.45 million sq ft of distribution and manufacturing space.

The development, owned by Harworth Group, will be located at Kellingley Colliery, a former mine site in North Yorkshire.

“This is a key development site for our district and crucial for the delivery of our Economic Development Strategy,” said councillor Mark Crane, Selby District Council. “It has the potential to create significant new jobs and bring in a huge amount of new investment.

“It benefits from the things that make our district a great place to do business, including fantastic transport connections, affordable business space and being supported by a skilled local workforce; all located right at the heart of Yorkshire.

“We’ve been working as a team with Harworth and their advisors, North Yorkshire County Council and with Selby College to create the plan for the site, as part of our work to support growth and development which opens up new job opportunities and helps to make us a great place for business and a great place to live.”
