Cameron Sanderson, Development Manager from the Harworth Group, added: “Phase 2 continues Harworth’s strategy of increasing our direct development of industrial & logistics space over the next five to seven years.

Regenerated site ready for two new communities

As part of two major regeneration projects, leading housebuilder Harron Homes has commenced construction of nearly 300 new homes on recently acquired land in Doncaster and Harworth. Both sites are the product of extensive investment schemes led by Harworth Group PLC, one of the UK’s leading land and property regeneration companies. Simpson Park Street Scene Plots 54-57-min… Harron Homes previously worked with Harworth Group at its Thoresby Vale site in Edwinstowe, where Harron has built 143 homes surrounded by beautiful views of Sherwood Forest. As two of the largest sites in Harworth Group’s portfolio, both Simpson Park and Riverdale Park look set to provide valuable opportunities for retail, residential, commercial, employment, leisure and green infrastructure developments. Simpson Park is located on the former Harworth Colliery site in Harworth, Nottinghamshire, where the coal mine operated for over 80 years, before being decommissioned in 2002 and demolished in 2016. The name of the site was chosen to respectfully commemorate the world-famous cyclist, Tom Simpson. Local to the area, Tom Simpson was a champion cyclist who sadly died ascending Mont Ventouz during the 1967 Tour de France. Harron Homes’ area of the development constitutes 13 acres, where they have commenced building 132 of their high-specification properties. There are plans for a nearby primary school to be extended to serve the development, and other amenities will be available on site, such as a family public-house and restaurant and extensive green public open spaces. Within 30 minutes driving distance of Worksop and Doncaster, the area is approximately a mile north of Junction 34 of the A1(M), providing access to the larger motorway network. Riverdale Park, located in Doncaster, South Yorkshire, has been regenerated from the old McCormick tractor factory site. Harron Homes has acquired the plot adjacent to the riverside, where 139 new homes are being positioned along river frontage ideal for delightful waterside living. The area has great commuter access to the M1, A1 and M18 and is under an hour away from Leeds and Rotherham. The development will also benefit from the proposed commercial infrastructure, several amenities of which have already been built. Nick Hague, Land Director of Harron Homes, says: “On these two new sites we are creating a host of new homes in really idyllic locations rich with cultural history. We’ve enjoyed a great relationship with Harworth Group in the past and are excited to be working with them again. The regeneration schemes they’re known for really boost these areas and pave the way for new, vibrant communities to be established. We’re very satisfied with the work we’ve done so far and look forward to developing these two popular housing locations.” Ed Catchpole, Regional Director for Yorkshire & Central at Harworth, says: “Harron Homes is a valued and trusted partner of Harworth, with a track record of high-quality housebuilding. We are delighted to be working with them again at Simpson Park and Riverdale Park, where they will help us to create vibrant and sustainable communities where people want to live and work.” For more information on Harron Homes please visit www.harronhomes.com.

Harworth secures planning for 110,000 sq ft of industrial & logistics space to begin Phase 2 of Gateway 36

Harworth Group plc, a leading regenerator of land and property for sustainable development and investment, is pleased to announcethat it has secured planning for 110,000 sq ft of industrial & logistics space as part of Phase 2 of its Gateway 36 development in Barnsley, South Yorkshire. The next phase of the scheme will see the direct development of three buildings ranging from 23,000 sq ft to 49,500 sq ft, which will include up to 10% office space and will be marketed as “R-Evolution 36”. The smallest building will be split into four units of 5,750 sq ft each to ensure its suitability to a broad range of occupiers. This will support the development of two additional buildings as part of Phase 2, which will provide an additional 425,000 sq ft of industrial & logistics space. The proposed development will be built to BREEAM “Very Good” standard, with 11% of the roof area covered by solar PV panels, and an enhanced design to allow occupiers to increase this coverage to 100%. The scheme will also include 20 EV charging points, rainwater harvesting and a sustainable heating and cooling system, as well as a building envelope design that is sympathetic to the surrounding environment. This development will build on the success of Phase 1 of Gateway 36, which comprised the direct development by Harworth of 145,300 sq ft of industrial & logistics space across four units, which were sold to Mayfair Capital in 2018. It also follows last month’s sale of a 24-acre land parcel at the development to Firethorn for £11.6 million, which will be used to deliver a BREEAM “Excellent” standard, 340,000 sq ft logistics facility. Located close to Junction 36 of the M1, Gateway 36 provides occupiers with direct motorway links to Leeds, Sheffield and Doncaster. The development is supported by £3.1 million of funding from Sheffield City Region, with all of the facility now drawn down contributing to the infrastructure that has opened up development of the site. Harworth is already well progressed with the creation of development platforms and access roads at the site, and intends to begin direct development of Phase 2 in early 2022. The units will be marketed by Knight Frank and Gent Visick. “Gateway 36 is a major hub for logistics and manufacturing in Yorkshire, benefiting from its adjacency to Junction 36 of the M1. The development of this discrete second phase of the scheme will be a contributor to Harworth’s strategy of increasing its direct development of industrial & logistics space over the next five to seven years.” Andrew Blackshaw, Chief Operating Officer, Harworth Group plc “The next phase of Gateway 36 will meet the growing demand for well-connected, high-specification industrial & logistics space in Yorkshire. In addition to supporting new jobs in the area, the development’s environmental impact will be minimised through the use of onsite energy generation and energy efficient design.”

CBRE and Gent Visick join existing agent Dove Haigh Phillips in advising on the delivery strategy for Temple Green which, upon imminent completion of the initial infrastructure and groundworks programme, will be ready to accommodate occupiers in the first two phases.  These phases incorporate land prepared for direct employment development, a range of roadside uses in addition to Leeds City Council’s 1000 space Park and Ride scheme. James Pitt, Development Director of Evans Property Group, said; “With the initial infrastructure works due to complete in forthcoming weeks, we are now entering into discussions with potential customers about delivery of their occupational requirements within a twelve month delivery programme.  As Temple Green is one of the north of England’s most significant commercial developments we felt that CBRE, who act for the some of Europe’s leading manufacturers and logistics companies, were best placed in positioning the scheme at a global level via the firm’s regional and London offices.” Ian Ball, Executive Director of Income Generation at Harworth Estates, continues; “The new appointments provide Temple Green with the skill, expertise and geographic reach we were looking for.  Gent Visick have a burgeoning reputation in the region and have performed extremely well on the rest of our Yorkshire portfolio. Their appointment alongside CBRE and Dove Haigh Phillips supports us being able to immediately bring forward Design & Build opportunities for a range of high-value businesses.” Mike Baugh, Senior Director of Industrial Agency at CBRE, comments; “Working as part of our national logistics team we are pleased to be promoting Temple Green, which is one of the largest schemes of its nature in the North of England, to the national and European occupier market. The development can attract significant inward investment into the region, deliver hundreds of jobs and address the present shortage of industrial accommodation and as such is an incredibly exciting project to be involved in.” Rupert Visick, Managing Director at Gent Visick, said; “We’re delighted to have secured such an exciting role.  Temple Green should establish itself as one of the UK’s leading commercial developments and Gent Visick will work hard to make this happen.  Our immediate focus will be on promoting the development as the leading site in Yorkshire for Design & Build opportunities.”
