Significant Cumbrian Commercial Development Opportunity

We are delighted to bring to the market a 15.24 acres of commercial development land on the outskirts of Kendal. Located East of Burton Road, Kendal, adjacent to the main railway line, this land has been allocated for a B1 Business/Science Park, such as professional offices and technology industries.  

This is a sizeable development site to the south of the town, in a great location for businesses and employers.  It has the potential to be a really significant development for the area in terms of both the local economy and job creation.

As yet no planning application has been submitted to the Westmorland and Furness Council and prospective buyers are recommended to make their own enquiries at the Planning Offices. 

The land may be inspected at any reasonable time provided those viewing are in possession of a copy of the sale particulars. The invited closing date for ‘Expressions of Interest’, is midday on Friday 15th March 2024 and all expressions of interest should be made to Rachel Bagshaw at the Staveley office of H&H Land & Estates.

This is one of only two strategic employment sites allocated in Kendal in the current Local Plan and this site has been identified as a high quality employment site aimed at offices and hi-tech industries, so it really is providing an almost unique opportunity for someone to develop a cutting-edge business park in this part of Cumbria.

The county already has a strong reputation for technology businesses with significant employers such as BAE and Sellafield located on the west coast, however, this site represents an opportunity to create a technology hub in a more central location with great transport links.

Currently this 15-acre site, on the edge of the Lake District National Park comprises pastureland with access directly off Burton Road, with stunning views of the Lakeland Fells to the north. The land is divided into three separate field parcels. The boundaries are predominantly dry-stone walls with some hedges and the eastern boundary adjoins the railway line. In terms of accessibility the site benefits from a public bridleway linking Burton Road to Oxenholme and there is a bus stop adjacent to the existing field entrance.

Operating across the North of England the Development Team provide advice and support from initial feasibility through to planning, valuation, and development for commercial, mixed-use, residential, and rural sectors.
