Multi-million pound phase of Barnsley business park to create 105 jobs
The second phase of development of a multi-million pound business park in Barnsley has begun.
Developer Carnell Management Services (CMS) has commenced work on the £5.25m phase of the Nexus Business Park at Capitol Park in Dodsworth.
Work has begun on two units totalling 45,000 sq ft of industrial and warehouse accommodation with offices, which is set to create an additional 105 job opportunities at the park.
Paul Carnell from CMS commented: “We are committed to creating development opportunities which will enhance the employment aspirations in the borough.
“The first phase of Nexus has been a successful scheme, bringing many new jobs to the region, and we are delighted to offer the latest speculative units to the market. This has been made possible by us accessing £1.24m from the ERDF to help kickstart this project.”
Rebecca Schofield, partner at the Sheffield office of Knight Frank which is marketing the 19,417 sq ft and 25,431 sq ft units along with joint agent Smiths, added: “Units for B1, B2 and B8 use are in high demand currently, as we have seen with the success of phase 1 which were fully let by the end of 2020.
“Location is key for this development. Not only does it have excellent road access to the M1 at Junction 37 to allow access across the Yorkshire region, but companies looking to expand can take advantage of the facilities of Barnsley town centre which is less than 2 miles away.
“The town, which has a population of 243,300, has lower than average wage levels compared to Yorkshire and Humber and UK averages; a plentiful labour supply with around 40,000 residents of working age looking for employment, and a population of 15,270,954 living within a two hour drive.”
