Construction Begins at 332,000 Sq Ft Bardon Hill Industrial & Logistics Development

Posted on September 27, 2021 in Industrial

Winvic has commenced construction of 332,000 sq ft of industrial and logistics space at Bardon Hill in Coalville, Leicestershire for client Harworth Group plc, a leading regenerator of land and property for development and investment.

Located less than two miles from Junction 22 of the M1 and adjacent to Harworth’s South East Coalville development, the 54-acre Bardon Hill site was acquired by Harworth in May 2018. This scheme received outline planning consent from North West Leicestershire Council for an industrial & logistics development in July 2019, and approval of reserved matters was received in March 2020.

The planned development will comprise five units ranging from 28,000 sq ft to 116,000 sq ft, built to BREEAM Very Good standard and EPC rating ‘A’, which can be used for manufacturing and distribution uses. All units will have first floor offices, secure service yards and dedicated car parking spaces. Plans will also include the development of a 10-acre local wildlife centre and new great crested newt ponds, to enhance local biodiversity and provide amenity space for the local community.

David Cockroft, Regional Director – Midlands, Harworth Group plc commented: “Our Bardon Hill development will deliver 332,000 sq ft of Grade A industrial & logistics space in a highly sought-after location less than two miles from the M1. In addition to providing new jobs for the local community, this development will protect and enhance local biodiversity through the creation of new green spaces, and improve local infrastructure. We have now begun marketing the site to potential occupiers and expect demand will be high.”
