4,000 new jobs to be created through 'sustainable' Doncaster business park
Thousands of jobs could be created under plans for a new business development in South Yorkshire.
A planning application has been submitted for a ‘major’ employment site on the outskirts of Doncaster.
Owned by Blue Anchor, the 195-acre site next to Junction 4 of the M18 motorway - known as West Moor Park East - will be redeveloped as part of the extension of the existing West Moor Park scheme.
Designed by architecture firm Bowman Riley, the site will comprise a range of employment units as well as outdoor seating and exercise space.
It is expected that the development will create up to 4,000 jobs, aiding the economic recovery of the area following COVID-19.
Jonathan Moses, director at Blue Anchor Leisure, commented: “West Moor Park East will provide a major boost to the local economy, especially in the current uncertain times the whole country faces. Over recent months there has been a big take up of other commercial space that has resulted in an undersupply of space in the Doncaster area.
“We strongly believe that these plans will help Doncaster, and the wider City Region, to ‘build back better’ and create a more sustainable, greener, resilient and prosperous borough that is the aim of all politicians.
“It’s an opportunity we feel should be grasped to create a sustainable new business park and extend the already successful West Moor Park. Creating new industrial and employment space here will allow existing local businesses to grow and attract major inward investment into Doncaster.”
