  • (1888PressRelease) July 22, 2010 - One of the UK's biggest names in the construction industry has chosen Harrogate's Pannal Business Park for its newest operation.

    Hanson Quarry Products has submitted plans to build a modern, small-scale concrete batching plant at the former Dunlopillo site, together with a new access road leading to it from the A61 beyond Spaceyhouses.

    And, if sanctioned by planners in August, it will also take the number of businesses who have re-located there to nearly 30 in just under two years.

    Nick Prescott for the site's agents, Gent Visick, said: "This is a massive vote of confidence in Pannal Business Park. The site is home to a diverse number of local companies, employing in excess of 100 people between them.

    "Hanson is having to move from its present site in Killinghall. They have chosen Pannal for its location and the fact it is a B2-classed industrial site, the very category this business falls under."

    He added: "What Hanson is proposing is for a very modern, small-scale operation. Because it is 'wet mix', there is a significant reduction in the amount of noise and dust associated with the older 'dry mix' plants.
    "To avoid wagons and HGVs driving into Pannal village, Hanson has also applied to construct a new access road from the A61 at Princess Royal Way. They, and we, are keen to keep any inconvenience to a minimum."

    Mr Prescott said, should Harrogate Borough Council planners be mindful to approve the plans, the plant would be operational between 7.30am and 5.30pm Monday to Friday, and from 7.30am to 1pm on Saturdays. It would also preserve up to six jobs.

    "Pannal Business Park is fast becoming the first choice for businesses looking to either relocate or start up. This is down to its location, transport links, extremely competitive rents and the array of different units available," he added.
