Work has started on a new industrial development in West Yorkshire following the appointment of a contractor.

Leeds-based commercial developer Eshton was granted planning permission for two units spanning more than 10,000 sq ft at Castleford in September 2020, having purchased the site in 2019 for an undisclosed sum.

Contractor C & AJ Marshall Builders, based at Foxhill Court in Weetwood, has now begun work on site and expects to complete on the units in August.

Eshton previously announced that fast-fit vehicle repair and service provider Formula One Auto Centres will occupy the smaller building. The developer will retain the second 6,000 sq ft unit to let.

Richard Tovey, director at Eshton, said: "C & AJ Marshall are an established contractor with a good reputation for quality and professionalism. To help us achieve our desired high-quality of construction; we selected C & AJ Marshall as part of our team and we are pleased that so soon after their appointment, they are on site and making great progress.

"Castleford offers a huge amount of potential, located in a thriving area. Formula One Auto Centres is already set to benefit from this, and we are now in the process of marketing our second unit for let. Businesses wanting to take advantage of the opportunity shouldn't hesitate to get in touch with the site's agent; Simon Hill from Colliers' Leeds office."
