The scheme is designed to transform the redundant former water treatment works site at North Bierley, near Bradford, into a job creating scheme to address regional supply shortages.
The property trading arm of Kelda Group and sister company to Yorkshire Water secured planning consent in 2016 to regenerate phase one of the site, which has been redundant for almost 20 years. The land sale to Opus North kickstarted a new commercial development, which Opus is currently on-site delivering.
Overall, the two phases will result in just over 500,000 sq ft of industrial and employment space, which have the capacity to house about 700 jobs.
The site, which is allocated in the Kirklees Local Plan for industrial development, is located at the major intersection of the M62 motorway and M606 Bradford link.
Matthew Turnbull, of Keyland Developments, said: “The phase two proposals at the North Bierley site will make a significant contribution in providing new industrial accommodation and employment opportunities in a region that is currently experiencing severe land shortages.”
