Eshton adds to Burnley Bridge spec wave

Planning permission has been granted for a fourth speculative industrial unit at the £50m Burnley Bridge Business Park at Junction 9 of the M65 after the 64,100 sq ft Cobalt Building went under offer.

Block C of Magnesium Court will add 10,000 sq ft to the current 29,000 sq ft of blocks A and B which, together with the 64,100 sq ft Cobalt Building, form phase one of the 70-acre site.

Jonathan Chapman, director of Eshton, said: "Since the Burnley Bridge Business Park scheme was first announced we have had high levels of interest from a wide range of potential occupiers.

"With the Cobalt Building already under offer, we expect the go-ahead for further construction work to generate renewed interest and new enquiries."

Construction of the first phase at Burnley Bridge Business Park is using £3.85m from the European Regional Development Fund for the project. Once complete, the business park will provide industrial accommodation totalling 680,000 sq ft.

Designed by KPP Architects, phase one construction and infrastructure work is being delivered by Leeds-based GMI Construction Group and Preston-based Eric Wright Civil Engineering.
