Large Development Site On The Market
23 Jun 2015
The Hard York Quarry development in Eccleshill, whichis one of the largest housing sites in the City Region has been put up for sale.
The multi-million pound, 58 acre, development has planning permission for 600 houses and a 21,500 sq ft retail centre
Offers are invited from major housebuilders across the UK.
A partnership between Bradford Metropolitan Borough Council and Hard York Quarries, a long-established Yorkshire business owned and run by the Marshall family, is responsible for this “unique development opportunity.“
The Hard York Quarry site on Harrogate Road, Eccleshill, has been producing fine Yorkshire stone products for individuals, businesses and organisations across the country for the past three generations.
Planning permission for the site also provides for a remodelled entrance from Harrogate Road (A658), and two new entrance points off Moorside Road, which could allow for either a joint or phased development programme.
Jonathan Phillips, a partner of Yorkshire property consultancy Dove Haigh Phillips, which is marketing the site, commented: “Following a review of the future resources of the quarry during the past four years, the Marshall family has worked in partnership with Bradford City Council in order to create a significant land assembly which extends to 58 acres.
“The site, with its principal access from Harrogate Road (A658), is now perfect for new development. It is located 2½ miles north east of Bradford city centre, six miles west of Leeds and is next to existing residential housing, a substantial area of green open space and close to well-established existing local services and facilities.
“As a result of the partnership between the Marshall family and Bradford City Council, planning permission was granted in April 2015 for a comprehensive redevelopment of the site."
