Regeneration of Brighouse’s Clifton Business Park gets green light

Outline plans for the commercial development of Clifton Business Park have been approved by Calderdale Metropolitan Borough Council.

Offices, light industrial, general industrial and storage and distribution uses are included in the proposed development for the 63-acre site on land off Coal Pit Lane, Clifton, Brighouse, just west of J25 of the M62.

Clifton Business Park is a major regeneration initiative that aims to deliver economic diversity and growth and create a wide range of new jobs locally and regionally.

A team of consultants consisting of SCP, Pegasus Group and Bentley Project Management, collaboratively worked together to deliver support and understand the needs of Calderdale Metropolitan Borough Council for the Clifton Enterprise Zone scheme.

This support consisted of the development of the masterplan, to secure outline planning permission, and delivery of an Outline Business Case (West Yorkshire Combined Authority – Assurance Process Activity 3) valued at circa £200k to obtain the funding to support the next stages of the scheme’s delivery which has a total value of £33m.

Paul Turton, Project Manager, of SCP, said: “To work collaboratively as a team in a multi-disciplinary approach, has enabled us to support Calderdale Metropolitan Borough Council to achieve the Outline Planning consent and Outline Business Case to help secure the funding for the proposed Enterprise Zone development at Clifton.

“This is a fantastic achievement for the Council, and the delivery team, clearly demonstrating that a collective of separate consultancies can work together collaboratively and successfully to support clients to achieve their aspirations.”

Chris Calvert, of Pegasus Group, said: “We are delighted that the outline plans for Clifton Business Park have been approved, with the scheme set to contribute to the continued growth and success of the existing employment uses to the north of A644 (Wakefield Road) in Brighouse, as well as the further growth and expansion of the regional economy across the Leeds City Region.”

The scheme is set to create more than 300 jobs during the construction phase and support around 1,300 full-time equivalent jobs once completed.

It is estimated that once operational and fully occupied, the gross value added (GVA) associated with the permanent jobs supported in Calderdale will be £42.6 million per annum.
