Multi-million pound plans to expand Calder Park business centre given the go-ahead

Multi-million pound plans to expand the Calder Park business centre have finally been given the go-ahead. The £19m scheme, which will create up to 1,000 jobs, stalled in January after Wakefield Council's planning committee deferred a decision after concerns were raised over flood risks and whether the drainage was adequate.

Multi-million pound plans to expand the Calder Park business centre have finally been given the go-ahead. The £19m scheme, which will create up to 1,000 jobs, stalled in January after Wakefield Council's planning committee deferred a decision after concerns were raised over flood risks and whether the drainage was adequate. Peel Holdings and investment partner Gladman Developments have now been given permission to build 10 two-storey office buildings at the business park, off Denby Dale Road. Nick Hey, construction project director at Peel, said: "This planning application follows hot on the heels of Gladman's successful phase one and phase two development and reflects their confidence in Calder Park as a great business location. "We are delighted that Gladman are investing further at Calder Park. "The development will offer further high-quality office accommodation with on-site car parking, set in an attractive courtyard environment. "Despite the current economic climate, this additional investment strengthens Calder Park's position as the fastest-growing business park in the region. "It is the number one choice for occupiers looking for city centre quality office accommodation, but with the added benefits of an out-of-town location like reduced commuting and intercity travel times, hassle-free access to motorway networks and a working environment that is second to none. "Calder Park is going from strength to strength with more than 45 businesses and 1,000 people already working on site."
