South Yorkshire based Priority Space is behind the £6 million development which will create 54,058 square feet of industrial or distribution workspace.

The new estate of units, ranging in size from 1,500 to 6,003 square feet, will be built on a 3.1 acre plot of land acquired from Caddick Construction.

Adam Richardson, director of Priority Space, said: “We’re delighted to announce we’ll be adding this development of useful-sized business units to Scarborough’s established business park. Our aim is to provide ambitious small and medium businesses in East Yorkshire with the perfect base to grow their business.”

Scarborough Business Park is already home to 50 big businesses including McCain foods, Plaxton coachbuilders, TEF Transport, NFU and Raflatac global label printers.

It is located in Eastfield, just off the A64, four miles from the town centre.

Mr Richardson said: “It’s time we stopped considering coastal locations as the ‘back of beyond’ in commercial property terms.

"Scarborough is well positioned, with good transport links, world-class connectivity and the added attraction of being on the beautiful East Yorkshire coast.

"As developers, we aim to deliver schemes that stimulate and support regeneration in communities like Scarborough. It’s a great place to do business.”

Priority Space will be working with Garness Jones, based in Hull, to attract occupiers.

Planning permission was granted by Scarborough Borough Council with construction expected to start in September and complete by May 2022.
