Riverside Business Park was purchased by Litton Property Group in 2001, and Litton have designed and secured planning approval for a complete regeneration of the historic industrial site within the Peak District National Park, a process that will be accelerated by the construction of the new bridge.
The new bridged access is a vital part of Litton’s masterplan for the site which aims to secure its long term future, bringing further wealth and employment to the town.
The construction contract was let to specialist civils contractor Bethell Construction Ltd. The project commenced in September 2020 and completed in March 2021. The contract did include the ramped access inside the site. The final construction requires further demolition of further (currently occupied) space.
Once the new bridge is operational this will allow unhindered access to Riverside for existing businesses and make the entire site more attractive to prospective occupants in many ways.
