The Aero Centre Yorkshire at Doncaster Sheffield Airport (DSA) has received the green light for further expansion by Doncaster Council.
The expansion will see up to 600,000 square feet of office, general industry, storage and distribution space developed with the potential to create up to 800 jobs for the local area at the 1,600 acre site at DSA.
The news follows the launch of the airport Vision Plan, which is set to become a major catalyst for Northern prosperity, international connectivity and attracting investment into the region.
The site could be made further accessible by public transport from surrounding towns and cities with the addition of the proposed East Coast Mainline link to the airport, which could be in place by 2024.
Peel Land and Property, part of the Peel Group that owns the airport anticipates strong interest in the site and will open discussions with developers and owner occupiers seeking commercial development land opportunities.
Peel Land and Property development manager, Andrew Farrer says: “Aero Centre Yorkshire’s wider development will build on the success of the DSA which has seen significant growth in recent times.
“The application has been prepared to reflect the rapid growth in the cargo and logistics market at DSA, helped by the improved accessibility provided by Great Yorkshire Way as well as its location within a national logistics hot spot between the Humber ports and the motorway network.”
