At Mosborough in Sheffield, Hallam purchased a large employment site, and following the relocation of the local sewage treatment works we have promoted a mixed use development that includes a Morrisons superstore, Arnold Laver’s national production plant and 450 houses.
A 130 acre site at Blackpool was also successfully promoted through two local plans and the developments on the site have provided many local people with employment at the large B&Q, hotel, pub, car showrooms and offices.
In Scotland we promoted a 23 acre site at Macmerry for employment use and this was purchased by the local authority following grant of planning permission. The site is now fully developed and occupied.
We also secured planning permission for 750,000 sq ft of commercial space at Bridgwater, including in excess of 650,000 sq ft of storage and distribution space which has now been acquired and built out by Wm Morrison Supermarkets plc. Mulberry Handbags have also developed a manufacturing plant on the site. Meanwhile Hallam have constructed 2kms of road including a bridge over the Bristol/Plymouth main line railway and a Primary School (to serve the 1,000 new homes).
More recently at Faversham, Kent, we have secured planning consent for 310 dwellings (now contracted to Barratt) and 215,000 sq ft of employment uses including a 100 bed hotel, a 60 bed care home and 2,100 sq ft of retail.
