Thorne Park closes in on full occupation of high spec units

Henry Boot Developments has seen a huge 80% of its high specification units at Thorne Park, Doncaster sold / let or under offer only one month after reaching practical completion.


The high level of interest in the units came prior to practical completion, with a lease deal announced back in August with Boxes and Packaging to open a brand new 45,000 sq.ft manufacturing facility. A deal for the terrace of units totalling 10,650 sq.ft, known as Units 1A-E, also completed in November.

Units 2 & 3; which each comprise 13,728 sq.ft, and Unit 5; comprising 18,740 sq.ft, are all currently under offer which now only leaves two modern industrial units, complete with office space, remaining at Thorne Park, located at J6 of the M18 in Thorne, Doncaster. The remaining units are situated on self-contained, secure sites and are available on a freehold or leasehold basis. Unit 4 comprises 30,500 sq.ft of new, high quality warehouse / production space, with an 8m clear internal height, suitable for general employment uses. The unit provides a generous yard area and 22 parking spaces.

Unit 6 comprises 18,740 sq.ft of high quality warehouse / production space and includes a large yard area with 18 car parking spaces.

Vivienne Clements, Director at Henry Boot Developments, said ‘We are extremely pleased to have seen such a high level of take up at Thorne Park so soon after practical completion. Having up to 80% now sold / let or under offer is very positive for the development and exceeds our expectation. We feel this represents a confidence in the market for well specified, high quality industrial units ranging between 15,000 – 50,000 sq.ft.


With only two units left at Thorne Park currently not under offer, we are hoping to achieve full occupancy for this development by Spring 2016.’

The Modern Slavery Act 2015 - Group Statement: View here

Henry Boot PLC and its Group Companies has, following the introduction of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 (the “Act”) implemented a number of measures which seek to bring about greater transparency and scrutiny into our various supply chains, in order to combat slavery and trafficking activities. Further to this, over the past year we have been reviewing the measures put in place and seeking to identify additional actions to strengthen our due diligence and transparency. The aim of the Act is in line with our own ‘Henry Boot Way’ Vision and Values, as updated in 2017, which include ‘Respect’, ‘Integrity’ and ‘Collaboration’, all of which are relevant to our approach in this regard.

We continue to keep under regular review our Human Trafficking and Slavery Statement (the ‘Statement’), setting out the activities undertaken to reduce the risk of slavery and trafficking activities being present within our business operations. These measures include the introduction of an Anti-Slavery Policy, due diligence requirements, and mandatory contract clauses seeking compliance by our supply chain with appropriate anti-slavery measures. Additional measures that have recently been put into place to increase knowledge and vigilance throughout our organisation and supply chain include posters and awareness cards across our sites.

We will continue to regularly work with our partners, contractors, suppliers and other stakeholders, as well as keeping industry best practice under review, to monitor our approach for effectiveness, and consider any changes or additional measures as appropriate.
