Major employment scheme proposed at Doncaster Sheffield Airport

Doncaster Sheffield Airport is currently the fastest growing airport in the UK

A further expansion of the growing commercial district at , the 1,600 acre site around Doncaster () has today been given the green light by Doncaster Council. 

The expansion will see up to 600,000sq ft of office, general industry, storage and distribution space developed with the potential to create up to 800 jobs for the local area. 

The news follows the recent launch of the airport and is set to become a major catalyst for Northern prosperity, international connectivity and for 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 who also own the airport, anticipate strong interest in the fully-serviced site and will open discussions with developers and owner occupiers seeking commercial development land opportunities on a prime, well-connected site, with significant growth potential. 

With the new permission secured, the scheme will drive forward inward investment for Doncaster and prove instrumental to the continued delivery of the wider ambitions for Aero Centre Yorkshire. 

The scheme also reflects the Local Enterprise Partnership’s (LEP) strategic plans identifying Aero Centre Yorkshire as one of its top priority growth locations and as a driver for inward investment and job creation with regard to logistics, engineering, aviation, energy and construction. 

Andrew Farrer, development manager from Peel Land and Property, said: “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.”
