PLANS have been submitted for the final phase of a business park on land that once formed part of a golf club in Bradford.

Commercial property developer Frank Marshall Estates wants to build approximately 1,660 sq m of workshop and office space in small units to create a ‘nano’ park as part of its existing Newhall Business Park.

Located next to the M606 off Rooley Lane and at the entrance to the ProLogis Park, the Bradford firm bought the site in 2014. It has already successfully developed eight larger units on the site. In addition the firm has almost completed its renovations of Newhall, the former clubhouse at West Bowling Golf Club, which is a listed building.

Once completed Frank Marshall Estates will make part of the building its headquarters.

Edward Marshall told the Telegraph & Argus: “This is the final phase of Newhall Business Park and is something new for us.

“They will be small hybrid units, with warehousing space below and office above.”

He added that the first phase had been particularly successful, saying: “We only have one unit vacant from the first phase - we’ve never had a development let as fast as this.

“And the renovations of the old hall are almost complete. It will be one of the nicest offices in Bradford.”

He said the firm had consulted with planners over this final phase and were confident of receiving planning permission.

As a result they hope to be on site this summer once a project in Huddersfield is completed.

In documents submitted to Bradford Council as part of the planning application, it states: “The proposed buildings are of a smaller scale than the other buildings at Newhall Business Park.

“In response to the setting of Newhall they are subservient to this historic building. The smaller scale of the proposed units will offer a different nature of space to the market in this location.”

The report adds: “The workshops are situated remotely from the Listed Building, subservient in scale and massing. They have contemporary features, especially on the prominent corner of Newhall Way and Rooley Lane.”

A total of 30 car parking spaces are included in the plans, with 14 spaces for the listed Newhall located to the south of the plot and 16 spaces allocated for the workshops located near the units.

ProLogis Park is home to a large distribution centre for retailer Marks & Spencer, which opened in 2010.

It followed members of West Bowling Golf Club agreeing to sell their course to the US developer for the creation of a giant business park.

The scheme was granted planning permission by Bradford Council in April 2008 and included outline plans for zone A, which has since become Newhall Business Park.
