Consent for 97,000 sq ft Lancaster Business Park expansion

Acting on behalf of the Albert Gubay Charitable Foundation, Derwent Estates has secured planning permission for 10 industrial and trade counter units off Caton Road.

The 97,000 sq ft scheme, located close to Junction 34 of the M6, will see the delivery of units across three plots:

Plot 1 – 13,000 sq ft self-contained warehouse building

Plot 2 – two warehouses with ancillary office accommodation of 30,000 sq ft each

Plot 3 – seven industrial and trade units ranging in size from 1,700 sq ft up to 7,000 sq ft, totalling 24,100 sq ft.

Additionally, the site has been granted planning on a fourth plot, which is earmarked for a 1,800 sq ft drive-thru and two retail units of 1,200 sq ft each.

A further 52 car parking spaces – including electric vehicle charging units – will be created at the entrance to the business park adjacent to the existing Brewers Fayre restaurant.

Andy McCormack, senior asset manager at Derwent Estates, said: “Now that the scheme has planning consent, we are moving forward at pace to secure new interest and negotiate terms on existing enquiries.

“We expect to see high levels of interest for this site. I can also confirm that we are currently in discussions with national F&B operators for the drive-thru and retail units.”

Lancaster Business Park currently extends to 61,500 sq ft, providing offices and vacant land.

Avison Young and Eckersley are the retained agents for the scheme.
