St. Modwen submits Derby park plans

If approved, the site will host three business units and create 300 jobs

St. Modwen Industrial and Logistics has submitted plans for the first phase of development at St. Modwen Park Derby.

The plans include intentions to develop three business units of 39,000 sq ft, 54,000 sq ft, and 79,000 sq ft.

The logistics site, which was granted outline planning permission in September 2020, could provide 300 jobs and a “boost” to the East Midlands’ economy.

Rob Richardson, senior development manager at St. Modwen, said: “We are committed to delivering a prime business park and a wealth of job opportunities for Derby and we look forward to bringing forward such a well-located scheme.”

Formerly known as Chaddesden Triangle, the park is being developed as a joint venture alongside Network Rail.

Located on Wyvern Way, adjacent to Pride Park, the site comprises 70-acres of brownfield land that has been derelict for an extended period of time.

Gary Walsh, managing director for the East Midlands at Network Rail, said that the development is “great news for Derby and the surrounding area”.

He added: “This land has been sat empty for some time so it’s really positive that not only will the land now be used, but the development will support the local economy and provide much needed new jobs.”
