North Yorkshire Council approves rail-connected logistics hub

Posted on by in Weekly News

Developer Harworth Group has secured a resolution to grant planning permission from North Yorkshire Council’s Strategic Planning Committee, for the development of a major rail-connected hub at its Gascoigne Interchange site in Leeds.

The plans will see the development of up to 139,350m2 of industrial and logistics space all built to Grade A specification, with Harworth expecting to start on site in 2025.

The brownfield site is one of Harworth’s next-generation of development sites and is situated in Selby, east of Leeds and adjacent to Sherburn Industrial Estate.

It is said to be one of the most strategically located, rail-connected sites in the region, enabling future occupiers to utilise the existing rail connection from the site for a wide variety of uses, including low carbon freight movement.

The site, which is accessed via Junction 42 of the A1(M), also has an extensive collection of rail sidings on either side of Network Rail’s Leeds to Hull line.

Harworth Group Chief Executive Lynda Shillaw, 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 our extensive pipeline of industrial and logistics sites and we continue to see high demand for high-specification strategically-connected Grade A industrial space.”
