┬ú48m Burnley Bridge Development Will Be “Open for Business”
A ┬ú48m 70-acre industrial and office space development in Yorkshire is still set to go ahead, despite a cut in regional development agency funding.
Leeds-based Eshton Group is confident that despite losing single program funding from the North West Development Agency, Burnley Bridge business park will continue to go ahead.
According to TheBusinessDesk, James Chapman, Managing Director of Eshton, said:
“We remain very positive. There has been significant interest in the park from both national and local companies, with serious enquiries ranging from large 200,000 sq ft distribution centres to smaller industrial units.
“The message is very clear. We are open for business. Overall we hope to create 1,400 new jobs at Burnley Bridge.”
The business park is predominantly designed for industrial and warehouse use, and offers up to 400,000 sq ft of large industrial units along with offices, a convenience retail store, cr├¿che and hotel.
Mike Dove from agents Dove, Haigh, Phillips, said: “Burnley Bridge Business Park, has unrivalled access to the M65 at the western gateway to Burnley town centre.
“Up to 650,000 square feet of high quality business space will be provided, set within a carefully designed and managed environment. Burnley Bridge offers a quantum leap in the quality of industrial and distribution space now available to the new economy of the M65 corridor.”
