Capitol Park Extension, Barnsley

Peacock + Smith have been advising on the development of Capitol Park Business Park in Barnsley since 2006.

P+S obtained hybrid planning consent in 2019, which comprised outline permission for an extension to the existing business park, to deliver Class B2 (Industrial) / Class B8 (Storage & Distribution) uses amounting to 17,500sq.m of floorspace and associated landscaping and infrastructure. Full permission was granted for the means of access, initial ground works and demolition of an existing bungalow.

Most recently, P+S have prepared and submitted a Reserved Matters planning application, approved by a unanimous decision at Planning Committee in June 2023, having successfully dealt with sensitive matters in terms of design and landscaping. Concurrently, P+S also secured a Lawful Development Certificate to confirm that a material start had been made on site, thereby evidencing that the Hybrid consent was extant.

The proposals, designed by The Harris Partnership, support the extension and growth of an existing and successful business park, creating a significant number of jobs both in construction and operational phases.
