An historic 19th Century mill in Huddersfield is open for business after redevelopment on Park Valley Business Park.

Park Valley House, which is based in Lockwood, is a 6,000 sq ft heritage building that has been converted to offices.

Developers Holmfirth Dyers and property consultants Dove Haigh Phillips led the development work and were joined by Kirklees councillors at its official opening last week.

It is one of the latest redevelopment projects around West Yorkshire to bring former industrial sites back into use.

Holmfirth Dyers will join Momentum Sales Solutions as the first tenants to take space in Park Valley House, with another deal imminent.

Executive business training and development consultancy Momentum has taken 750 sq ft and is taking a further 350 sq ft, while Park Valley Business Park-owners Holmfirth Dyers are moving into a purpose-built 750 sq ft office in the restored building.

There is an additional 4,000 sq ft of space available to lease within the three-storey building, with floorplates ranging from 300 sq ft to 2,000 sq ft for potential occupiers.

More than 70 jobs have been created as a result of the development. At full capacity, the park is expected to house hundreds of employees.

Brian Duckett of Holmfirth Dyers said: “There is still much work to be done in completing the later phases of our development, but we have made a great start.”

Kirklees Council’s Paul Kemp said: “The transformation of a neglected site into what we see here today is amazing and Park Valley Business Park will provide much-needed expansion space for businesses to the Huddersfield area.”
