Plans have been submitted to bring a modern 1,933m2 builders merchant facility for Travis Perkins to the Vesuvius development off Sandy Lane, Worksop.
The proposal will further regenerate this brownfield site and address a live requirement for a new bespoke Travis Perkins facility within Worksop. It will provide 20 new jobs, deliver a new supply chain facility for existing local business and bring economic benefits to the area.
The Vesuvius comprehensive regeneration of the 17.75ha Vesuvius site began in 2018, supported by D2N2 with a £4.48m investment from the Local Growth Fund. With planning permission for more than 200,000ft2 of employment space, the multi-million-pound first phase of commercial development is due to complete this summer.
Providing multi-tenanted 46,000ft2 of industrial units, ranging from 1,200 to 5,000 ft2, and retail space adjacent to the recently opened Asda superstore, the first pre-let has already been agreed with Burger King.
Subsequent phases will also offer larger employment units including speculative as well as pre-let, design and build development for office, light industry, storage and distribution requirements.
Along with Travis Perkins, it has recently been announced that Nottinghamshire Fire and Rescue intend to construct a new fire station at Vesuvius.
D2N2 LEP CEO, Sajeeda Rose said: “The Vesuvius site represents a landmark development for Worksop and the wider area. It’s great to see the Vesuvius development is attracting investors and businesses and unlocking opportunities for new jobs, supporting our collective ambitions to rebuild and grow our economy.”
Will Moss, Head of Acquisitions Midlands and South West for Travis Perkins plc, said: “We are delighted to be involved in this exciting new development, providing the opportunity for us to relocate to a new purpose built and modern branch. This new site will provide our customers with a significantly bigger, better and more accessible branch facility, offering a superior range of building material and landscaping products.
