Planning consent granted for 400,000 sq. ft. logistics facility in Doncaster

Work is set to start on a large logistics development, Eclipse, situated at the intersection of Junction 5 / M18 and the M180 motorway, at the award-winning Unity development; one of the UK’s largest regeneration and infrastructure projects.

The facility is ideally located for both regional and national distribution with unrivalled access to the M1 and M62 as well as access to Doncaster’s rail-freight port, Railport and the three East Coast seaports of Goole, Immingham and Hull.

Delivering market-leading sustainability credentials, the facility is designed specifically to reduce energy use, mitigate climate risk, boost biodiversity; both reducing occupancy costs and fulfilling a number of the environmental, social, and corporate governance criteria, with a target completion date of December 2023.

CBRE's Industrial team in Leeds and Colliers have been instructed as joint agents on behalf of specialist European real estate investor Blackbrook.

Mike Baugh, executive director at CBRE said: "With demand in the region outstripping supply, the investment by Blackbrook into this smart logistics facility is very welcome and sought after.

"Carbon neutrality is no longer a question of choice, it is beyond a necessity. It is also ideally placed to capitalise on excellent, high quality logistics connections, as well as attracting talent from a large workforce."

Alice Vacani, vice president at Blackbrook, added: "We are excited to be working with the team on this logistics facility, which will be developed with best-in-class technical and ESG specifications in the heart of Yorkshire.

"The facility is well-positioned for nationwide logistics requirements, boasting strong access both north-south and east-west across the UK, and a strong and available labour force. It's an excellent new addition to Blackbrook's portfolio."
