Planning approval exists for approx. 85,000 sq.ft. of high quality employment space at Riverside Business Park, the Peak District's largest dedicated home for business.
The first 11,000 sq.ft. building, named 'Fearnehough', reached Practical Completion in April 2021. Litton undertook an external works packages to complete service diversions, service yard area, roadway and car parking. Occupiers began their fit out during the winter months and opened in January 2022. We welcomed new occupiers ISL Networks and Criterium Cycles and existing occupier RR Motorcycles relocated into this space. Two further units are under offer, one remaining unit is available.
In addition, the new bridge access into Riverside Business Park from the A6 was substantially completed by contractors Bethell Construction. This new access road will be 'connected' and available for use following the demolition of further (currently occupied) space, this is anticipated to be before the end of 2022.
In January 2022 DSR Demolition returned to site to complete the next phase of demolition to make way for the next 20,000 sq.ft. building. Ground improvements works were carried out in March with foundations programmed for early April. The building will be spit into two units which have been reserved by two local occupiers in the food sector.
Litton are working closely with their professional team and consultants to deliver the next phase of re-development at Riverside Business Park. Existing occupiers on the site have reserved this further space to enable their business expansion. Works are due to commence in early summer 2022.
