Work underway at Pocklington scheme

– Industrial and trade counter units now available for businesses –

Work has started on a new industrial scheme at Broadhelm Pocklington, with Howdens Joinery signing up as one of the first tenants.

The ‘Broadhelm Business Park’ development is a joint venture between Helmsley Group and Pocklington based Broadvale Developments.

The development is due to be completed this July, with trade counter and industrial units available from 1000sqft to 10,000sqft and opportunities for larger development requirements on the 12 acre site.

The move comes further to the development of a petrol station and Starbucks drive through at the A1079 roundabout known as ‘Pocklington Services’, where over 25,000 vehicles drive by on a daily basis.

Ed Harrowsmith from Helmsley Group comments: “The site at Pocklington has now started to gather momentum in terms of occupier interest in light of recent lettings to Howdens and the sale of land to Home Fit. With amenities like Starbucks and ‘Pocklington Services’ at the site, the scheme is a great location for businesses in the East Riding and North Yorkshire areas.”

Howdens Joinery has signed up to a pre-let tenancy, with 8,000 sq ft at the scheme on a 15 year lease.

Jonathan Atkinson of Broadvale Developments says “The Broadhelm Venture have made a significant investment in new roads and infrastructure to help facilitate this development.  The attraction of new business and potential creation of many new jobs demonstrates ongoing confidence in Broadhelm Park and Pocklington as a commercial centre.”

Mark Churchill, Head of Property at Howdens Joinery, the leading supplier of kitchens in the UK, said: “We have been looking for the right premises in Pocklington for some time and this new depot will enable us to grow our local business.  We are very pleased to be opening at Broadhelm Business Park as part of our on-going expansion programme.”

The second phase of development, Helmsley Court, a terrace scheme of 10,500sqft trade counter units, is due to start onsite this summer, with over 70% of the scheme already reserved.

Gent Visick and Procters advised the Broadhelm Joint venture. Montagu Evans acted on behalf of Howdens Joinery.
