Plans submitted for 2.9 million sq ft of employment space in Doncaster

Harworth Group plc, a regenerator of land and property for development and investment, has submitted an outline planning application to Doncaster Council to deliver a significant new employment hub at Bradholme Farm in Thorne.

The application, which has been submitted in partnership with Mr Paul Gilliat, would deliver 2.9 million sq ft of employment space at Bradholme Farm, a 257 acre site adjacent to Thorne. The proposals will contribute to the regeneration of Thorne, creating up to 4,500 new jobs and providing around £252 million of GVA per annum.

The development plans are split into two employments zones to the north and south of the site, which are set around a large central landscaped area incorporating ponds, with footpaths and cycle routes linking the scheme to Thorne and nearby Thorne South railway station.

The proposed layout allows for a range of employment uses; the northern zone, which is adjacent to Thorne, would offer smaller employment units ranging from 10,000 sq ft to 170,000 sq ft, whilst the southern section has been designed to provide larger warehouse units spanning from 160,000 sq ft to 775,000 sq ft.

Peter Henry, Regional Director – Yorkshire & Central, Harworth Group plc, said: “The employment proposal for Bradholme Farm is one of a number of sites being considered by Doncaster Council and the Local Plan Inspector as part of the preparation of its new Local Plan.

“We consider this site to be one of the most sustainable and well connected sites in this part of Doncaster, which would bring important regeneration benefits for Thorne. We have also ensured that our application addresses the planning issues raised by the Planning Inspector at the recent Local Plan Examination.

“New industrial and warehousing development in this location will attract major investment into Doncaster. Harworth has a proven track record of delivering new employment opportunities in Yorkshire and has worked with Doncaster Council previously on the regeneration of the former Rossington colliery site, which is being transformed into a new housing development for 1,200 homes called Pheasant Hill Park off Junction 3 of the M18.”
