Expansion planned for Sherburn2

July 7, 2023

Family-owned property company Glentrool Estates Group Ltd has announced plans to further transform its 85-acre site, Sherburn2 into a logistics and manufacturing park.

The company says that development of the Sherburn in Elmet site, which is costing £157.9 million, will create over 1,400 local jobs for the region. It submitted a detailed Reserved Matters planning application for the North and South phases of Sherburn2, which will open the remaining 25.5 acres of the site.

Director of Glentrool Estates Group Ltd, Jeremy Nolan, said: “With the growing success of the East phase, the company has invested in the reserved matters planning application for the North and South phases to accelerate delivery for occupiers. “The submission of the Reserved Matters application reinforces the regional importance of this significant site, which compliments the emerging housing supply and large, skilled workforce of the Selby District.” The South phase featured in the plan, proposes that a single unit of 374,000 square ft can be built on the land, with a further five units, ranging from 2,850 square ft to 48,330 square ft, occupying Sherburn2’s North phase. The company claims that the development will have sustainability in mind with extensive landscaping, new combined cycle and footpaths, communal areas, a woodland walk and a BREEAM target planned for the site. Cllr Derek Bastiman, North Yorkshire Council’s executive member for Open to Business, said: “We welcome this significant investment into the Sherburn2 site. “There has been a long and positive relationship with Glentrool to unlock the potential of this site, which will bring significant new business and jobs into North Yorkshire. “We also applaud the commitment to sustainable design and see great potential to attract high-quality jobs at this premier logistics and manufacturing park.” Sherburn2’s East phase is projected to be complete by October, 2023.

Plans have been submitted to further develop the Sherburn2 site, with those from Glentrool Estates Group Ltd hoping to expand the area, making room for a new logistics and manufacturing park. (29-06-228 SU) (29-06-229 SU)
