Sherburn2 is one of the most significant new development sites in Yorkshire, both in terms of the jobs it will create and the inward investment it will attract. Work is underway at the 75-acre site. It’s superbly located with Yorkshire’s excellent motorway network only minutes away, and mid-way between the cities of Leeds and York, with Selby and Tadcaster close by. There are also excellent rail links.
Right at the heart of Yorkshire, this site offers fantastic road and rail links for a wide range of businesses.
This development is on its way to becoming one of Yorkshire’s premier creative hi-tech business, television and media centres. The vision of Create Yorkshire, the brand name for this bold initiative, has been given impetus by the success of The Yorkshire Studios already on the site, which has been used to film award-winning TV drama. The site, which is just to the east of Leeds, will also benefit from the proposed relocation of Channel 4 to the Yorkshire city.
Create Yorkshire will be at the heart of Yorkshire’s growing creative industries, worth over [£xxm] to the regional economy.
This 151-acre site of the former Kellingley Colliery is set to provide up to 1.45 million sq ft of manufacturing and distribution space, which could bring as much as £200m of benefit to Yorkshire’s economy. It has rail access unrivalled by anywhere in the UK, with a rail head directly onto the site. Developers, Harworth Estates, are taking a flexible approach to working with potential investors: they’ll sell bits of the site for companies to build their own units or will create long-leasehold deals where they act as the landlord once new units have been built. The aim is to bring high value employment back to the site as quickly as possible.
Kellingley provides rail access unlike anywhere else in the UK, putting it at the heart of the UK’s rail infrastructure.
