Rare strategic opportunity in Derby


A RARE opportunity to purchase development land and new industrial space near to Derby’s strategic rail freight interchange is being offered through commercial property consultancy Innes England.

Fronting the A38 Carriers Road in Eggington, the 2.163 acre site is just a stone’s throw away from the new East Midlands Intermodal Park, the result of a partnership between global property group Goodman and Shepherd Group, which will bring six million sq ft of manufacturing and distribution space to Derbyshire. Interest in the site has already been significant according to Innes England director, Nick Hosking, who is marketing the site on behalf of a private individual.

He said: “The standout feature of this site is undoubtedly its location. There are excellent transport links to the M1 and A50, which provide quick and easy access to road systems across the UK.

“Not only that, but its proximity to the new Strategic Rail Freight Interchange is a real plus point. Goodman and Shepherd Group have recognised the potential of the area as a strategic hub for industry and transport and are working with the landowners to deliver a prosperous scheme.

“This activity will undoubtedly give the area a real economic boost, encouraging inward investment and creating jobs for the local community and will promote the area and stimulate further activity. The hub will further establish Derby as a key business location not only in the East Midlands but the wider UK.

“Another plus point for this site is its frontage to the A38, giving it prominence and excellent visibility to passing traffic. With this in mind I think it would lend itself to a variety of uses – including the office use it already has planning consent for.”
