Plans have been submitted for a large business park forming part of a key employment area in Derby. The program, which spans more than 1.6 million square feet, is expected to create thousands of jobs.

Joint venture company Infinity Park Derby has submitted design proposals for the development of approximately 120 acres of logistics, industrial and commercial park.

Infinity Park Derby is a joint venture between Derby City Council, Harpur Crewe Estate, Rolls-Royce and developers Cedar Park, Wilson Bowden and Peveril Securities.

Proposed uses include warehousing and distribution, general and light manufacturing, research and development, offices and hotels, and restaurants and cafes.

All buildings are designed to achieve a best-in-class EPC rating of ‘A’ to ensure energy efficiency throughout the life of the building and will achieve a BREEAM rating of no less than ‘very good’.

The site is approximately 2 miles north of the A50 (J3) and within five miles of the A38 (A50 J4) and 8 miles from the M1 motorway (J24A).

The primary access is the newly built Infinity Park Way link road, which connects the site to Junction 3 of the A50 (Derby Southern Bypass).
