Sherburn 2

Peacock + Smith are advising Glentrool Land on the implementation of their outline planning permission for 1.25m sq ft of new employment floorspace at the former airfield in Sherburn in Elmet. The site, at Junction 42 of the A1(M) will form a new logistics and manufacturing park. The development has the capacity to support the creation of more than 1,450 full-time equivalent jobs.

Our involvement started with the submission of a reserved matters applications for 142,000 sq ft of employment floorspace as part of the ‘S2 North’ development and a further reserved matters application for 375,000 sq ft industrial and distribution unit as part of ‘S2 South’. Extensive landscaping proposals, including new combined cycle and footpaths, communal areas, a woodland walk and an Excellent BREEAM target also form part of the proposals.

The planning applications have raised many issues and involved discussions with regards to the economic benefits of the development and how to mitigate environmental impacts. Given the proximity of the Sherburn Aeroclub, the project also involves extensive discussions with the Civil Aviation Authority Airfield Advisory Team (CAA AAT).
