Harworth Group receives planning approval for industrial and logistics development

Harworth Group PLC, a regenerator of land and property for sustainable development and investment, has secured planning approval from Leeds City Council for the development of 800,000 sq. ft of industrial & logistics space at its Skelton Grange site in Leeds.

The approved plans would see the development of up to five units of industrial and logistics space, ranging in size from 126,000 sq ft to 202,000 sq ft.

The units will be built to EPC grade A specification, incorporating renewable energy and high standards of environmental efficiency.

Alongside infrastructure upgrades, the plans include a segregated cycle and pedestrian path — proposed to connect to the Trans Pennine Trail and Sustrans Route 67 — as well as tree and hedge planting and other ecological enhancements.

Lynda Shillaw, CEO at Harworth, commented: “Skelton Grange demonstrates Harworth’s unique skillset in identifying and acquiring complex brownfield sites, devising a masterplan that realises their potential and then progressing this through the planning system to unlock value.

“This development will meet the growing demand for high-specification and well-connected industrial space across West Yorkshire, supporting jobs and investment for the region.
