Groundworks have begun at a new £8 million trade business park, Trade Marq, in Whitfield.

Trade Marq Dover is being developed by Location 3 Properties. It totals 26,650 sqft and will include seven trade units, two of which are pre-let. These units range in size from 2,750 sqft to 5,000 sqft and have planning consent for general industrial use.

Colin Thacker, managing director for Location 3 Properties, has said: “We are unable to confirm the occupiers at the moment for legal reasons but will do so as soon as we are able.”

Location 3 Properties is the same developers of the successful Honeywood Retail Park also at Whitfield, which pre-let to B&M Stores, Pets at Home, Bensons for Beds and KFC.

Retailers moved in to the £10m retail park last year, shortly after to completion in June 2015.

Trade Marq Dover, which will be based on undeveloped agricultural land near to B&Q, is expected to create up to 50 new jobs for the area.

It will include facilities for storage, outlets for bathroom and kitchen furniture, electrical products and machinery hire, a plumber’s and builder’s merchants and an auto centre.

A report by Alastair Thornton of Simply Planning said the plans had “numerous benefits” and would have a positive impact on the area’s regeneration.

The development would also include a 66-space car park and a separate unit with planning permission for a food & drink outlet.

It is hoped with its key location close to the A2 and A256 that it will add to the commercial and residential expansion of Whitfield.

The sole agents for the development are RAB Commercial.
