Asfordby Business Park to be Relaunched as Melton Commercial Park

Harworth Estates has announced that it will be relaunching its existing Asfordby Business Park to become Melton Commercial Park as it promotes a range of land opportunities for leasehold occupation.

The 127 acre site, one of the few in the Midlands with a live rail siding for distribution, is located two miles north east of Melton Mowbray. Following the completion of a range of capital works on the site including the demolition of its former ‘A’ block, three development plots are immediately available, ranging from 1.65 acres to 10.2 acres. Whilst the site is being promoted for long-term open storage uses, Harworth will consider alternatives, including Design & Build opportunities, should occupier interest arise.

The relaunch of Melton Commercial Park also follows the decision by car dealer Sandicliffe to take 0.9 acres of open storage land on a three year lease. Other tenants at the Park include Network Rail, who operate a Rail Innovation and Development Centre for the testing of vehicles and infrastructure from the site, alongside Wirtgen Group, Caldic and S&J European Haulage.

Tim Powner, Agency Manager for Harworth Estates, said “Melton Commercial Park is a well-established business location that is much improved following the capital works we’ve completed over the past two years.  Its rail-connection, high power capabilities and range of available land means that it is an ideal location for companies requiring multi-modal distribution space.”

Innes England and Knight Frank have been appointed as joint agents for the development. Stuart Waite, Associate Director for Innes England, said “We are delighted to be working with Harworth Estates and our joint agents Knight Frank to drive forward this already well established business park. We are currently engaged in positive discussions with a number of local, regional and national occupiers and expect further companies to join the likes of Network Rail and Sandicliffe shortly.”
