New Stanton Park

New Stanton Park covers c. 80 Hectares (200 acres) of permitted employment land situated between Derby and Nottingham, just 2.5 miles and a 10-minute drive from Junction 25 of the M1. The new development plans include reintroducing the direct Midland Mainline rail connection and developing out a range of warehouse and industrial units that will total c. 2.2 million ft² of highly efficient space.

The development will see the proposed expansion of the existing rail hub, accessible by all occupiers on the park and offering direct mainline rail connectivity for goods and logistics movements direct to and from the UK’s key ports. The proposal is capable of accommodating the largest of goods locomotive, with an 935-metre-long siding on a site of c. 16.7 acres.

The strategic location of New Stanton Park pulls in a large potential labour catchment within a 45-minute drive to work time, with the key East Midlands cities all within a 30-minute drive time. Blended with good public transport links and a regular bus route serving the site on Lows Lane, combined with local rail services from nearby Ilkeston railway station, c. 2.5 miles, New Stanton Park is able to deliver employees for occupiers from both a skilled and un-skilled background.
