The Derwent Group submits industrial scheme for Hull’s Anlaby Retail Park

The Derwent Group has submitted fresh plans to bring forward a long-consented industrial scheme on strategic development land adjacent to Anlaby Retail Park in Hull.

The group’s revised plans comprise 40,000 sq. ft of high quality industrial space to the north east of the retail park, which will be split into a number of individual units for B2 and B8 use. Units will range in size from 1,500 sq. ft to 10,000 sq. ft, with the option of adding a mezzanine floor.

Andrew Day, Senior Asset Manager at The Derwent Group which owns the Anlaby Retail Park site said: “The refreshed plans maintain the site’s required employment use and will provide much-needed flexible and modern industrial accommodation to meet the requirements of local occupiers.

“These plans also demonstrate The Derwent Group’s wider commitment to expanding our industrial portfolio and actively bringing high quality new industrial space to the market.”

Subject to planning, the scheme is expected to be complete by early 2023.

David Garness, Director at Garness Jones, acting agent for the scheme said: “This scheme has been designed to reflect local market demand for industrial space and will capitalise on the success and amenity of neighbouring Anlaby Retail Park.”

The strategic land adjacent to Anlaby Retail Park forms part of The Derwent Group’s strategic land portfolio and joins Glasshouse, a 124,000 sq. ft industrial scheme in Wigan, which has also been submitted for full planning permission.

Anlaby Retail Park is situated in the affluent suburb of Anlaby, 4.5 miles from Hull city centre and features 12 units totalling 103,000 sq. ft of retail space. The park is home to M&S Foodhall, Next, Costa and Pure Gym among others.

The Derwent Group is part of the Albert Gubay Charitable Foundation and operates in the retail, leisure, industrial, commercial and residential sectors. The Derwent Group owns and manages 3 million sq. ft of commercial property including 2.1 million sq. ft of retail and leisure space.
