£105m Sherburn2 now open for business

A pioneering £105 million Yorkshire business park, which has the capacity to create 2,550 sustainable jobs, is now open for business.

Yorkshire property development company Glentrool Estates Group is transforming a 75-acre site at Junction 42 of the A1 Sherburn-in-Elmet, Leeds into a first-class business and employment park.

Called Sherburn2, the site is next to the existing successful Sherburn Park, whose occupiers include Debenhams, Sainsbury, Optare, Eddie Stobart and Kingspan.

A brand-new bridge, linking the site to the B1222 Sherburn-Cawood road, has just been installed.

The success of Sherburn as a destination for high-quality occupiers has underlined the strength of the location, both in terms of the labour force and transport links. Now Sherburn2 will add to that success.

Nigel Adams, MP for Selby, said: “This development stands to reaffirm the Selby District is very much open for business and I’m pleased the project has already received significant interest from potential occupiers.”

David Dickson, chair of the York, North Yorkshire and East Riding Enterprise Partnership’s Infrastructure Board, which directs investments in key sites and infrastructure to grow the local economy, said: “With the potential to create 2,550 new jobs, we are delighted to see work starting to take place on site.

“The project was kick-started with a loan of £2.95m from the government’s Growing Places Fund, and with its location on our A1(M) and A19 growth corridor, it is very important to our area strategically.

“The site offers businesses quick access to essential routes to the north which we are hoping will be very attractive for our growing manufacturing, warehousing and logistics sector in particular.”
