The development of a significant new business park is about to take off, as having resolved to grant outline planning permission for the development last year, Harborough District Council is set to issue the planning consent following the recent completion of the Section 106 Agreement.
In a salute to its heritage, the 25 acre scheme will be known as Wellington Business Park and built on a strategically located site to the north-west of Market Harborough, within one mile of the A6. It will comprise some 450,000 sq ft of industrial, warehousing and office accommodation with a drive-thru coffee shop / restaurant on land north of Airfield Farm.
The site historically formed part of the airfield that was used by the RAF in World War II and was home to the Wellington Bombers of No. 14 Operational Training Unit of RAF Bomber Command.
Commercial property agent Prop-Search has been appointed as sole agent to market and promote the new business park, which could bring over a thousand new jobs and significant inward investment to the town, creating a new gateway from the north of Market Harborough. Buildings will initially be available on a build to suit basis with industrial/warehouse units from 10,000 sq ft to 100,000 sq ft and office buildings from 5,000 sq ft on a freehold or leasehold basis.
Director at Prop-Search, Richard Baker, said: “Demand across the Midlands is not easing up as occupiers compete for the limited space available within the ‘Golden Triangle’.”
“We have received a significant amount of interest in the site for a variety of uses and I am delighted to be able to properly engage with interested parties now that the Section 106 has been signed and planning consent granted”.
“Wellington Business Park undoubtedly represents an exciting opportunity to meet this occupier demand, creating business opportunities and bringing inward investment into the town. We look forward to engaging with local, regional and national businesses seeking new premises within Market Harborough and this Golden Triangle location.”
