New industrial units to accommodate 140 jobs in South Yorkshire

A newly completed development is set to meet a shortage of industrial units within Sheffield City Region.

Network Space has completed the speculative development of five new industrial units at Ashroyd Business Park in Barnsley, South Yorkshire.

The units, which will accommodate more than 140 jobs, range from 11,000 to 53,000 sq ft on the Dearne Valley Parkway close to junction 36 of the M1.

Simon Peters, development director of Network Space, commented: “Good quality industrial space is in very short supply. The range of space at Ashroyd Business Park has been designed to meet significant occupier demand from smaller and medium sized occupiers and we are receiving a high level of enquiries.

“Thankfully, we have been able to offer virtual video tours, as well as socially distanced visits as lockdown has eased.

“Now that the units are complete, we are seeing increased interest, particularly due to the flexibility of the space, prime location and great transport links.”

Ashroyd Business Park is being delivered with investment from the Sheffield City Region JESSICA Fund and support from Barnsley Metropolitan Borough Council.

Cllr Tim Cheetham, cabinet spokesperson for regeneration and culture at Barnsley Council, added: “We are delighted to be assisting Network Space with such a high quality development in a first class location in Barnsley.

“This is great news for the borough, providing further opportunities to boost our local jobs market and Barnsley’s economy.”
