Treatment site offers 800 jobs in West Yorkshire pipeline

West Yorkshire could benefit from the creation of 800 new jobs in the region.

The Yorkshire Post reports this is due to a 57-acre treatment site in West Yorkshire being sold, with planning consent being given for a 400,000 sq ft industrial and employment space and 800 jobs in the pipeline.

Keyland Developments, the property trading arm of Kelda Group and sister company Yorkshire Water, was given planning consent from Kirklees Council in March to transform the site, which has been dormant since 2010. 

The site is in a strategic position at the major intersection of the M62 Transpennine motorway and the M606 Bradford Link in West Yorkshire, giving it a strong appeal to industrial occupiers. Once developed it will hopefully deliver widespread employment and economic benefits to the region.
