Onward Holdings plots course for new logistics and warehousing opportunities

Businesses seeking to move or expand its supply chain in the north of England are being urged to contact Onward Holdings Ltd about leasing two plots of land that it has available in a prime Yorkshire location.

The company says that these excellent design and build opportunities at the Onward Park site in Featherstone, West Yorkshire, can help businesses looking for new sites, or increased capacity, to store and ship goods overcome the current shortage of suitable industrial space which is hindering the logistics property market.

Phase Two at Onward Park on the Green Lane Industrial estate has up to 70,000 square feet for either a logistics facility or general warehousing, subject to planning permission. The park is only a short distance from the major motorway infrastructure of the M62, M1 and A1M and is within easy reach of the northern container ports and Doncaster airport.

Unit 4 is a 1.6 acre development site of up to 20,000sqft providing a potential logistics operation with scope for a service area for trucks, while Unit 5 is the big brother of the two made up of four acres with a design and build footprint for warehousing of 20,000sqft to 70,000sqft.

Planning permission for the new plots should be quickly forthcoming allowing for construction to commence in a matter of months of bespoke build units to meet most business requirements.

Green Lane benefits from excellent distribution connections and is also close to the railway freight network via the nearby Wakefield Europort. According to Onward Holdings around 80% of the UK’s population is accessible in four hours, making the industrial estate ideal for a variety of distribution solutions.

The Featherstone site, which is based on a former coal mine, was originally established by Yorkshire Forward, the former regional development agency, due to its great geographical positioning and also the local skilled workforce.

Onward Holdings has already successfully let all of the 71,000sqft of Phase 1 and believes that the new design and build plots on this highly popular estate, with the help of a recovering economy, will provide an excellent business opportunity for those involved in warehousing, distribution, retailing and light manufacturing.

Site promoter Andrew Miller, from Andrew Miller Chartered Surveyors of Sheffield, said: “Onward Park is an ideal location to create the high quality and strategic logistics and warehousing sites that Yorkshire is crying out for. We have already had enquiries so urge businesses to get in touch now if they don’t want to miss out on this great opportunity.”

Family-run business Onward Holdings specialises in operating highly competitively priced industrial warehousing and retail parks in the North of England. Its other warehousing sites include nearby Castleford, Doncaster, Ackworth and Scunthorpe as well as the very busy Onyx Retail Park at Wath upon Dearne.
