Around 450 jobs are set to be created at a major storage and distribution centre in South Yorkshire.

Trammell Crow Company, a global developer and investor in commercial real estate, has been granted planning permission from Sheffield City Council to develop the former Betafence and Tinsley Wire site at Shepcote Lane in Sheffield and transform it into a logistics base.

A spokesman said: "By working closely with Sheffield City Council and local stakeholders, TCC has achieved its first planning permission in Europe in under three months. The approved plans will see demolition start immediately at the 20-acre site to replace the existing building with a 367,151 sq ft Grade A logistics facility. The site, on Shepcote Lane, 0.5 miles from Junction 34 of the M1 motorway, includes a facility of 455,750 sq ft, formerly let to fencing manufacturer Betafence."

Construction work is due to start in the summer and completion is due in early 2023. CBRE acted as planning consultants on the project and Chetwoods were appointed as the architect.

"The Betafence site demonstrates the high-quality logistics locations we are actively seeking to develop across Europe. I’m excited to see how the development evolves as we look to provide in-demand quality storage and distribution units in the area. Thank you to all those involved in getting us this far.
