The opportunity at Junction 11 comprises three key sites known as Poniel, Broken Cross and Happendon
Part of Poniel comprises a former open cast mine (now occupied by Dewars), restored in 2010. The landholding extends to over 200 acres and has planning in principle for a variety of uses, including Classes 4,5,6 and energy related opportunities. Both Dewars and Hargreaves Land are already located within Poniel. Poniel is served by a dedicated spine road which connects directly to Junction 11 of the M74.
Broken Cross totals in excess of 50 acres and comprises a mixture of existing industrial warehouses, workshops, offices and open storage sites. The accommodation is available on short or longer term licence or lease. Current occupiers include Wren Kitchens and Blackwell Plant.
Following a recent felling exercise at Happendon Wood, over 60 acres is now cleared opposite Happendon Service Station on the B7078, which has recently been acquired by the Westmorland Family. This site could prove suitable for Class 4,5 and 6 as well as uses complementary to the existing services, subject to planning.
