Harworth plans 1.5 million sq. ft. Yorkshire site

Rotherham-based Harworth Group plc said it has secured a resolution to grant planning permission from North Yorkshire Council’s Strategic Planning Committee for a major rail-connected industrial and logistics hub at its 185-acre Gascoigne Interchange site in Leeds.

The land and property developer said plans for the site include up to 1.5 million square feet of industrial and logistics space, which it said has the potential to deliver up to £190 million gross development value. Harworth is expecting to start on site in 2025.

The brownfield site is situated in Selby, to the east of Leeds and adjacent to Sherburn Industrial Estate. It is close to main line rail connections and Junction 42 of the A1(M).

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 Harworth’s extensive pipeline of industrial and logistics sites and we continue to see high demand for high-specification strategically-connected Grade A industrial space.”
