Plans have been granted for a new industrial development which could create 250 jobs.

Keyland Developments Ltd secured planning permission from Doncaster Council for the 90, 000 sq ft site at Little Lane in Kirk Sandall.

The company has appointed estate agents Knight Frank to bring the site to market and estimate the development could create up to 250 jobs when at full capacity.

Project leaders identified a shortage of industrial units in the area and are expecting plenty of enquiries from potential occupiers.

Peter Garrett, managing director of Keyland Developments Ltd, said; “We are delighted to have secured planning approval for this strategic site which is within an employment policy area in the Doncaster Unitary Development Plan.

“The planning consent will enable this under-utilised site to be transformed into a job-creating, high-quality development which can make a positive contribution to the local area by attracting inward investment and creating employment opportunities.”

Rebecca Schofield, partner at Knight Frank’s Sheffield office, added; “The well-documented shortage of industrial land and accommodation in South Yorkshire makes sites such as this very attractive propositions.

“The scale, positioning and capabilities of the site, combined with the planning in place, will undoubtedly attract strong levels of interest.”

The 6.3 acre site is just 2.5 miles north west of Doncaster town centre and will include a range of units between 4,000 and 25,000 sq ft.

It is also behind an existing Yorkshire Water treatment works site and is bounded by industrial developments to the north and east.

There is good access to the local and national road networks.
