Plans brought forward for premium Leeds logistics hub

Plans to deliver a new high-quality logistics and industrial hub at Leeds Valley Park have been brought forward.

The proposals from Caddick Developments would result in a significant employment boost to the area, totalling between 400 and 500 jobs once completed, and establish the site as Leeds’ premium ‘mid-box’ logistics scheme.

Situated between Junction 44 of the M1 and Junction 7 of the M621, Leeds Valley Park is an ideal location for accessing regional and national road networks.

The site sits within 15 minutes’ drive from Leeds City Centre, making it a prime location to attract local, regional, and national businesses.

Proposals include the construction of six light-industrial ‘mid-box’ units of varying sizes and styles. The proposed scheme will consist of spacious, modern B2 & B8 classed units, whilst the surrounding complex will be landscaped to create a welcoming work environment.

The 20-acre site, which is owned by Caddick Developments, will provide 306,000sq ft of high-quality floor space.

This application makes a significant contribution to meeting the strong level of demand within the logistics and industrial market for developments of this quality and type and will be a welcome boost for the local economy.

“With over 40 years of experience in delivering developments such as this, we are confident that Leeds Valley Park is the perfect location for a new logistics hub and will quickly become Leeds’ leading ‘mid-box’ logistics location,” said Jim Dyson, Director at Caddick Developments.

“The proposal comes at an exciting time for the sector, and with its perfect location and high-quality design, the development is set to attract businesses from across the region and the nation and in turn provide a welcome boost to local employment.

“COVID and the linked restrictions have highlighted the importance of a resilient supply-chain and online retailers and traders in particular have seen the need to adapt to a changing landscape.

“The transport connectivity of this site in particular, will make it an attractive proposition for a range of end-users, including those already in the area who are looking to expand.”

Granted planning consent, Leeds Valley Park would join an impressive list of logistics developments delivered by Caddick, including Wakefield 515, Crosspoint 33, and Moor Park.
