Work completes on multi-million pound industrial development in Barnsley
Construction has been completed on a multi-million pound industrial scheme in South Yorkshire.
Work has finished on the new 25,000 sq ft Barrowfield Business Park development in Thurnscoe, on the site of the former Hickleton Colliery which shut in 1988.
Developed by commercial property developer Priority Space in partnership with H.G. Sites the new park provides 15 new units suitable for industrial, storage and distribution use.
Director at Priority Space, Lee Buchanan, commented: “We are very pleased to announce completion of this important development which transforms a former mining site into business units designed to attract investment into the area and create jobs for the local community.
“We are passionate about supporting regeneration and delivering high-quality, accessible spaces which offer business opportunities for small to medium-sized businesses.
“There is a strong interest nationally in warehouse and distribution space right now, as the online retail sector continues to grow – a development accelerated by changes in shopping behaviour during the Covid-19 lockdown.
“Barrowfield Business Park is very well-placed to provide excellent business premises for this sector and we look forward to seeing enquiries coming in for these units.”
Cllr Tim Cheetham, Cabinet spokesperson for regeneration and culture at Barnsley Metropolitan Borough Council, added: “We are delighted that this first class development, supported by Sheffield City Region Jessica funding, is now available for inward investing and expanding local businesses.
“Our award winning Enterprising Barnsley team is available to provide comprehensive business support and ongoing assistance to occupiers.
“This is a further vote of confidence by national developers that Barnsley is an excellent location for investment and we look forward to continuing to work with Priority Space in the future.”
