Demolition and clearance works were completed between 2016 and 2018 which included demolition of the site’s former industrial buildings and winding towers. Most of the site’s remaining coal fines have also been purchased by the region’s power stations and removed from site.
An anchor occupier currently exists on-site, with the Coalfield Regeneration Trust (CRT) currently in legals to develop a 39,000 sq ft scheme of small industrial units at the front of the site ranging from 3,000 to 4,000 sq ft. This deal was made possible after CRT secured European grant funding. CRT are expected to start development on-site in 2021.
Planning and detailed design is currently being undertaken by Harworth in preparation for the commencement of new infrastructure works into the site which will see the delivery of a new entrance and access road. These works are also expected to start in 2021.
