Plans for a new business park in Burnley, which could bring up to 1,300 jobs to the town, have been revealed. The proposals are designed to build on the existing Burnley Bridge and Titanium Park developments.
To date, the masterplan off the M65 carriageway has yielded more than £50m of investment to surrounding area.
Now, a plot on the opposite side of motorway to the two sites currently in operation has been allocated as proposed employment land in the council’s next Local Plan.
Dubbed Burnley Bridge South, the scheme would provide a mix of warehousing and industrial accommodation, with a range of units tailored to meet the needs of its occupiers. Sitting adjacent to the A679 Accrington Road, the indicative plans are for 600,000 sq ft of space.
James Chapman, managing director of Eshton, which is behind the Burnley Bridge Employment Gateway, said: “Burnley Bridge South forms part of our vision to expand Burnley’s business park presence and demonstrates our ongoing commitment to investing in Burnley. Our strategy of continued growth is on track and we’re confident that the next 12 months will bring further significant milestones for the business park and Burnley.”
