Extension to A50 business park

Bondholder CWC is set to create hundreds of new jobs at a Derbyshire business park after plans for a major extension were given the go-ahead.

South Derbyshire District Council has approved the scheme, which will involve adding almost 500,000 sq ft of space at Dove Valley Park, off the A50 at Foston.

The extension, set over 58 acres, represents the second phase of the business park, which was first established in the late 1990s on a parcel of land that was once part of the RAF Church Broughton airfield.

Today, Dove Valley is home to businesses including JCB Power Systems, Futaba International, Kuehne and Nagel and Muller.

The extension will be built to the north of Dove Valley Park where parts of a former RAF airfield still remain.

Now, further big names could be set to move in creating new jobs.

The extension will see three new units built, which would be no smaller than 161,458 sq ft each and would be for general industrial, storage and distribution use.
