Construction has commenced on a new development of 332,000 sq ft of industrial and logistics space at Bardon Hill in Coalville, Leicestershire.
The site is being developed by Harworth Group, who are a leading regenerator of land for development and investment. Having previously worked for the Harworth Group, Mather Jamie has been instructed to act as the property agent and market the development to potential buyers.
Located less than two miles from Junction 22 of the M1 and adjacent to Harworth’s South East Coalville development, the 54-acre Bardon Hill site was acquired by Harworth in May 2018. This scheme received outline planning consent from North West Leicestershire Council for an industrial & logistics development in July 2019, and approval of reserved matters was received in March 2020.
The planned development will comprise six units ranging from 28,000 sq ft to 116,000 sq ft, built to BREEAM Very Good standard and EPC rating ‘A’, which can be used for manufacturing and distribution uses. All units will have first floor offices, secure service yards and dedicated car parking spaces. Plans will also include the development of a 10-acre local wildlife centre and new great crested newt ponds, to enhance local biodiversity and provide amenity space for the local community.
