Plans submitted for major Harrogate business park
29 Mar 2016
Outline plans have been submitted for a major 130,000 sq ft business park in Harrogate that could support more than 500 jobs.
The proposals for Beckwith Knowle Business Park, which have been drawn up by Seven Architecture, relate to an 8.5-area site located off Beckwith Head Road, directly adjacent to Cardale Park Business Park and about two miles from Harrogate town centre.
Plans for the business park were submitted by ID Planning on behalf of Beckwith Knowle Developments and seek outline permission for a scheme with the capacity to support 116,250 sq ft of grade A office accommodation alongside two 5,650 sq ft units for light industrial or distribution use.
The success of Cardale Park is cited as an indication that local businesses and new inward investors hold the location in "high regard as a quality area within which to work".
As well as the jobs the end-development could support, the construction phase would create more than 100 jobs, according to the application.
