Roads are now officially open at Leeds’ largest advanced manufacturing and logistics base, Temple Green.
It follows Aire Valley Land LLP concluding the first phase of infrastructure works at the 165 acre development – one of the largest of its type in the North of England. Temple Green at J45 of the M1 is the largest of the four development sites in the Leeds City Region Enterprise Zone with planning permission in place for 2.64m sq ft of developed space.
The project is a joint venture between Evans Property Group and Harworth Estates. The £7m first phase of a total £9.1m infrastructure and groundworks investment programme has now completed, creating 1.2 km of new dual carriageway and the remediation of 20 acres of development plots aimed at roadside dealerships and a petrol station, in addition to Leeds City Council’s, 1,000 space Park and Ride transport hub.
Direct access to the scheme’s largest development plot is also complete. Roger Marsh, chair of the Leeds City Region Enterprise Partnership (LEP), said; “The Leeds City Region Enterprise Zone is a strategically important location, that I view as crucial to the LEP achieving its ambition to drive extraordinary growth to the local and national economies. Now with the completion of the first phase remediation works at Temple Green it’s clear that the scale of Aire Valley Land’s ambition is on a par with our own and I look forward to the potential future announcements regarding occupiers to the site, who will join an already esteemed group of businesses based on the Leeds City Region Enterprise Zone.”
