Multi million square foot logistics facility set for South Yorkshire

Doncaster Metropolitan Borough Council has granted Leeds-based Wilton Developments outline planning consent for up to 3.52 million sq ft of logistics and industrial space.

This will occupy a 180-acre site adjacent to junction 6 of the M18 at Thorne, Doncaster.

Jason Stowe, managing director of Wilton Developments, said: “We are looking forward to bringing forward this key employment site within the Northern Powerhouse.

“We are programmed to be on-site later this year with delivery of the first buildings in 2023. Further detail and updates on our plans will be available shortly.”

Elsewhere in South Yorkshire Wilton Developments has recently completed its 300,000 sq ft Enterprise 36 scheme at Tankersley, delivering four warehouse and industrial units to occupiers including Williams Rowland, Dura and USL Group.

Two of the buildings were acquired by CBRE Investment Management for one of its discretionary funds.

Wilton is active across the north of England specialising in office and industrial development and investment.
