FIFTEEN acres of commercial development land on the outskirts of Kendal are available on the market.

This 15.24 acre site comprises pastureland with access directly off Burton Road, with views of the Lakeland Fells to the north. The land is divided into three separate field parcels, according to the agents H&H Land & Estates.

Located East of Burton Road, Kendal, adjacent to the main railway line, this land has been allocated for a B1 Business/Science Park, such as professional offices and technology industries. 

The boundaries are predominantly dry-stone walls with some hedges, and the eastern boundary adjoins the railway line. The site benefits from a public bridge linking Burton Road to Oxenholme, and a bus stop is adjacent to the existing field entrance.

No planning application has yet been submitted to the Westmorland and Furness Council, and prospective buyers are recommended to make their own enquiries at the Planning Offices. 

The land may be inspected at any reasonable time, provided those viewings are in possession of a copy of the sale particulars. The invited closing date for ‘Expressions of Interest’, is midday on Friday March 15 and all expressions of interest should be made to Rachel Bagshaw at the Staveley office of H&H Land and Estates.

In bringing this to the market, Rachel Bagshaw, Associate Director and Head of Land Agency in South Lakes for H&H Land & Estates, said:

“This is a sizeable development site to the south of the town, in a great location for businesses and employers.  It has the potential to be a really significant development for the area in terms of both the local economy and job creation.

“This is one of only two strategic employment sites allocated in Kendal in the current Local Plan, and this site has been identified as a high-quality employment site aimed at offices and hi-tech industries, so it really is providing an almost unique opportunity for someone to develop a cutting-edge business park in this part of Cumbria.

“The county already has a strong reputation for technology businesses with significant employers such as BAE and Sellafield located on the west coast, however, this site represents an opportunity to create a technology hub in a more central location with great transport links.”
