Job-creating expansion planned for York Business Park | Yorkshire Property News




Plans have been submitted for a job-creating extension to a York business park.

The Tonsley York Trust have filed plans with York City Council for the development of land north of Monks Cross Drive.

Recently completed work on an 11-unit development on an adjacent site, ranging from 1,925 square feet to 3,550 square feet, representing phase 1 of the development.

A full building permit is now requested for the construction of two buildings measuring a total of 13,000 square feet.

The units would measure 8,500 square feet and 4,500 square feet respectively, with 21 parking spaces also included in the plans.

They would be suitable for light industrial (Class E), general industrial (Class B2) and storage and distribution (Class B8) uses, with incidental use at the commercial counter.

A statement submitted as part of the application says the proposed development would have “direct positive economic impacts at the construction stage” as well as in the longer term through the creation of around 20 jobs.

He added: “Nomination proposals must be developed on an accessible site located in a commercial area. The proposed use is compatible with existing nearby uses and will not result in damage to the amenity of nearby commercial units. .

“The design of the proposed buildings reflects the character of the surrounding area and will add to the variety of accommodation in the business park and wider York Region.”

The project team includes O’Neill Associates, Ian Belsham Architects, RDF Ecology, Harley Haddow, Roberts Environmental, Ryden, Martin Design Associates and Fore Consulting.
