Green light given for 2 million sq ft warehouse in Wakefield

Planning permission has been granted for a new 2,000,000 sq. ft. distribution warehouse at Wakefield Hub, a 200-acre industrial and logistics scheme located adjacent to Junction 30 of the M62 in Yorkshire.

The joint application was made by Newmarket Lane Ltd and Mountpark and the decision allows for works to start on site in May, which will include a new spine road through the scheme and extensive landscaping.

This will pave the way for the delivery of the warehouse by Mountpark which, when complete, could see the creation of around 1,500 new jobs.

Wakefield Hub is also one of the largest regeneration projects of its kind in the UK. Regenerating the former Newmarket Colliery site, the development will secure vital inward investment and create thousands of new jobs.

Wakefield Hub is being delivered by Newmarket Lane Ltd, a joint venture between HBD and Yorkcourt.

Ed Hutchinson, Managing Director of HBD, said: “We are very pleased that the planning committee has approved the application for this latest development at Wakefield Hub – it’s brilliant news for Wakefield and is a huge vote of confidence in the city as a place to invest.”
