The East Riding of Yorkshire Council has given the green light to developers Sterling Capitol for a new access road at Capitol Park Goole at Junction 32 of the M62.
Now planning has been granted, the access road will open up the 32-acre site for quality industrial development, creating 1,200 sustainable jobs.
Capitol Park Goole has already been given the go-ahead to be a large-scale employment and distribution hub.
The 32-acre site, which has a capital value of £43 million, has direct access to Junction 36 of the M62 and the Port of Goole, and sits within the Humber Enterprise Zone with potential for a dedicated rail link.
Mike Heydecke, on behalf of Sterling Capitol, said: “This is a significant development for us, underling our commitment to this superb site.
“The access road will open up the site and create much-needed business space and jobs in the Goole area.
“The site has the capacity for 500,000 sq ft of quality warehousing and distribution space. We are looking to build one substantial unit, but could subdivide into two. It is adjacent to Guardian Glass and a major Tesco distribution hub, underling the park’s credentials.
“Now planning permission has been granted we will be actively marking the site. There has already been interest from potential occupiers, attracted by Capitol Park’s superb location, the quality of the site and its Enterprise Zone status.”
Stephen Silvester, Inward Investment Manager for the East Riding of Yorkshire said: “Planning permission the access road is the last piece in the jigsaw for this strategically important employment site.
“It will allow Capital Park to build on the growing recognition that Goole, with its multi-modal transport links, excellent access to labour and Enterprise Zone status, is an ideal location for business.
“The jobs that will be accommodated at Capitol Park will be a real boost the local economy and we look forward to working with Sterling Capitol to secure these investments for Goole.”
Iain McPhail, partner in the industrial team with joint marketing agents Knight Frank said: “Capitol Park represents a major opportunity in the East Riding area, offering significant potential for employment and distribution development on a strategic site close to the M62 and the ports at Goole, Grimsby, Immingham and Hull.”
