Rare development site in Nottingham’s M1 corridor


ACTING on behalf of McCann, Innes England has been instructed to market Access 26, a rare development site in Nottingham’s M1 corridor. The site has already received a positive reaction, which comes at a time when industrial development opportunities in the region are in short supply.

The 4.16 acre site is ideally located adjacent to the A610 dual carriageway within five minutes drive of Junction 26 of the M1 motorway and is the last available development plot on the successful business park which has already attracted occupiers including 3663 logistics and Warburton’s.

Buildings are available to purchase or rent on a design and build basis to suit occupiers specific needs within the 20,000sqft to 60,000sqft size range. The site already benefits from planning consent for the development meaning the completed buildings can be delivered in a relatively short timescale.

Craig Straw of Innes England says: “For some considerable time now there has been a lack of industrial development opportunities in the Nottingham area and this has been reflected in subdued transaction levels held back by the lack of available good quality accommodation. There has already been a really good response to the site primarily from owner occupiers drawn from a range of sectors.”

The scheme is one of the first in the region for developers McCann, who already have an excellent track record in the infrastructure and civil’s market.

John McCann says: “Access 26 is a strategic location for businesses seeking excellent links to the region's main arterial roads. Our design and planning team has carried out detailed pre-construction work, providing a platform for speedy negotiation with prospective occupiers.

“Early interest in the site from potential occupiers has been extremely encouraging. Accordingly, we have pressed the button on detailed pre-construction work to make sure that the development can marry with our customers needs. With a major resource and fleet of plant and equipment within McCann, we are able to move quickly on the infrastructure works required.

Simon Gardiner from Lumen Management Services, who will manage the scheme's delivery, added: ”We are extremely encouraged by the firm interest shown in the site but not surprised. It is clear that good secondary existing stock has been taken up, leaving little or no new strong strategic land for expanding organisations."
