Plans submitted for major industrial and logistics park in Leeds

Jan 18, 2023

We’re delighted to announce that we’ve submitted plans to deliver a major new industrial and logistics park on a 60-acre site, known locally as Brown Moor, located adjacent to our flagship Thorpe Park Leeds development.

Following a series of public consultation events showcasing the proposed masterplan, our planning consultant, Zerum submitted an outline planning application, which seeks permission to develop up to 60,000 sq m (645,834 sq ft) of industrial and logistics space with ancillary office space. The buildings will be capable of being brought forward in multiple phases to respond to market interest and occupier demand.

The application also includes details of the estate infrastructure, public footpaths and other public rights of way which will as part of the proposals will be enhanced, as well as the site landscaping.

Integral’, as the development has been named, will deliver a range of high-quality buildings suitable for companies of different sizes within the advanced manufacturing, logistics and industrial sectors, adding to the strong economic mix of east Leeds and providing hundreds of new jobs.

The design of each building will be highly-sustainable and in keeping with the contemporary style of architecture at Thorpe Park Leeds.

Extensive landscaping is also proposed throughout the scheme with over 40% of the site retained as green space, while public connections and rights of way to the existing amenities within Thorpe Park Leeds will also be enhanced, making the area more accessible and connecting the local community.

The proposed development will be accessed from the new Manston Lane Link Road (MLLR) which forms part of the recently-opened East Leeds Orbital Route which is, in turn, directly accessed from junction 46 of the M1 motorway, providing a well-connected and highly-accessible location for future businesses located at the site.

Adam Varley, Development Director, said:

“The industrial and logistics sector is undergoing significant change.  Supply chain resilience, rising energy costs, smart infrastructure and the continued growth of e-commerce are forcing businesses to rethink their real estate requirements. Decision making factors such as accessibility, cost and labour pool, while still relevant, are now being overtaken by the need to attract and retain the very best talent.

“The design of Integral scheme at Thorpe Park Leeds responds to the shifts in the market by providing industrial spaces that are integrated into a dynamic and established mixed-use community. Working with the design team we believe that the buildings will offer exemplary accommodation with enviable sustainability credentials, as well as access to an abundance of high-quality landscaped spaces.”

Thorpe Park Leeds is strategically located with its own dedicated access at Junction 46 of the M1. More than 900,000 sq ft of office space is already built, supporting over 5,500 jobs as well as The Springs retail and leisure park which includes the 10-screen ODEON Luxe cinema, Next, Boots, M&S, TK Maxx, The Range, H&M, Pure Gym, Nandos, Piccolo by Piccolino, Caffe Nero and many more.
