Clowes Developments have been granted planning consent to speculatively build out phase 2 of Forbes Park, Long Eaton.

Erewash District Council have given the green light for 3 speculatively built units totalling 45,000ft². The standalone units will be located on the left-hand side of the main entrance. The units will be jointly marketed by agents NG Chartered Surveyors and FHP Property Consultants. The two front units (A & B) are already under offer with interest gaining momentum on the other unit, Unit C, a detached unit of 2,364m² (25,445ft²) with excellent specification and external yard space.

The contractor Roe Developments are already onsite having recently completed the earthworks in readiness to start building phase 1 of the development known as Forbes Court which offers a total of 32,562ft² across 11 trade / industrial / warehouse units. Interest in the entire scheme is so high that Blocks D & F have already been snapped up and will see occupiers, including national retailer, Toolstation, trading as early as Quarter 4, 2021.

Chris Proctor of FHP Property Consultants commented:-

“More space becoming available at Forbes Park is great news for the market at a time when we continue to see remarkable levels of demand across all sizes and spheres of the East Midlands commercial property market from both tenants and potential purchasers alike. Hats off to Clowes for proactively building much needed stock speculatively across the region.”
