Harworth secures Dunelm deal in Barnsley

The FTSE 250 retail group will use the 20,400 sq ft logistics unit at Gateway 36 to support its home delivery network.

The unit is part of a total of 110,000 sq ft of new logistics space constructed in 2023 as part of the second phase at the 127-acre Gateway 36 and has been classified as BREEAM Very Good.

With this letting now complete, only one 50,255 sq ft unit remains available for occupation within phase two.

A third phase is now in the pipeline following the receipt of planning last year for a further 138,800 sq ft unit together with a further 429,000 sq ft envisaged across three more buildings.

The site, located adjacent to Junction 36 of the M1, has benefited from significant infrastructure funding from South Yorkshire Mayoral Combined Authority and last year became part of the UK’s first Investment Zone, focused on advanced manufacturing.

Jonathan Haigh, chief investment officer at Harworth, said: “We are seeing strong demand for our newly developed industrial & logistics space across our regional areas of operation, including Yorkshire, where the supply of high-specification more sustainable space remains constrained.

“Our development at Gateway36 is progressing well and we are delighted to welcome Dunelm to the scheme which aligns with our strategy announced in 2021 to progressively transition our Investment Portfolio to entirely modern Grade A space.”

Harworth was advised by GV&Co and Knight Frank.
