Eshton secures Castleford site in latest acquisition

Leeds-based commercial developer, Eshton, has completed the purchase of a 1.5-acre site in Castleford, West Yorkshire.

Prominently located with good frontage to Park Road, the land has been purchased for an undisclosed sum. It follows a series of property acquisitions for Eshton around West Yorkshire in Stourton, Shipley and Normanton.

The development site is close to Junction 32 of the M62, providing excellent motorway links, as well as good access to Castleford Town Centre, making it an attractive site for both trade and retail uses. It is also located close to Carr Wood Industrial Estate, which is popular with trade occupiers.

Although the site has the benefit of a B8 trade planning permission for 13,000 sq ft, there are a mix of uses in the vicinity including roadside and motor related.

Richard Tovey, director at Eshton, comments: “Castleford is a desirable location, and with growing demand for quality sites and commercial floor space along the M62 corridor, Park Road is a good addition to our development portfolio. We can tailor our plans around occupier needs and will consider both leasehold and freehold deals.”

The Leeds office of JLL has been retained to promote and market the proposed development.
