Plans for a 47-acre waterside business park submitted to Wakefield council
Keyland Developments are the property trading arm of Kelda Group and sister company to Yorkshire Water. They have been operating across Yorkshire for more than 20 years, regenerating Yorkshire Water’s redundant sites. The site of the proposed City Fields Waterside Park Business Hub is on land bought by Keyland for an undisclosed sum in 2013 and the sewage works have been out of operation for over a decade.

Keyland development manager Ryan Unsworth said; “With direct access to the WERR, this site is one of the most strategically important in the region and has the potential to deliver significant employment opportunities in-line with the aspirations of the Wakefield East Consortium. With work underway on the road, the whole City Fields area is gathering momentum and the creation of this major employment element will ensure its long-term sustainability.”
There is no denying that the UK needs more homes and developments like this are really exciting, providing both housing and employment opportunities. We think it is great news to see the Yorkshire region leading the way with its regeneration projects.
