The developer behind a proposed new 50-acre business park in Nottinghamshire has told Insider it has already received an enquiry for a one million sq ft unit while other parties have explored the possibility of 500,000 sq ft deals.
It follows planning permission being secured for the development off the A1 in Blyth, set to provide space for industrial warehousing, offices and a training centre.
Outline plans for Rossington Business Park III, owned by Rossingtons, the property business behind similar parks in Retford and Glossop, have been granted permission by Bassetlaw District Council.
The site, previously considered as an enterprise zone, is located on agricultural land to the west of Blyth Road and off junction 34 of the A1M Doncaster bypass.
Leeds-headquartered Dove Haigh Phillips has been appointed as agent on the scheme and a spokesman for the property consultancy told Insider he expected the park's "superb" location and potential as a manufacturing and distribution base for the Midlands, Yorkshire and the north to spark interest from potential occupiers and investors.
The spokesman added that the park's proximity to the former Harworth Colliery meant it had access to significant power resources, setting it apart from potential rivals.
Four large building are proposed for industrial and storage units, with office accommodation making up six units and a "well-being centre", providing facilities for retraining out-of-work people in the vicinity, taking eight smaller 1,000 sq ft units.
The two-storey office buildings will flank the A1 while the larger sheds, up to a height of about ten metres, will be located away from the road.
The surrounding area was predominantly served by the mining industry and unemployment in the area is high.
The training centre is intended to offer opportunities to the local unemployed through small incubator units.
