Heysham Business Park is a 44 acre industrial estate located near the village of Heysham, UK, a few minutes’ drive from the M6 and a stone’s throw from Heysham Port, a highly successful Ferry Terminal to Northern Ireland, the Republic of Ireland and the Isle of Man. The area is also serviced by good passenger rail links on the North West Mainline at nearby Lancaster as well as freight lines at the Port.
The area is at the centre of a vast regeneration plan led by Lancaster City Council, and is undergoing considerable transformation which has been significantly boosted by the opening of the Bay Gateway. Completed at the end of 2016, the roadway connects Heysham and the Port of Heysham to J34 of the M6 motorway in just 10 minutes. The new bypass is expected to bring a return to the local economy of over £600m which the area is already experiencing with an upswing in investment, notably in transport, logistics and energy.
Heysham is part of the North West Energy coast, with its focus on nuclear and off shore energy generation. A clear example of this is the Walney Offshore Wind farm, the world’s largest operational offshore wind farm, whose landfall and substation are positioned in Heysham. Further investments will only continue to expand with new developments, both onshore and offshore, thanks to the much improved access.
Heysham Business Park is the perfect location for companies looking to strategically position their business in the north west.
A big feature of Heysham Business Park is its flexibility. There is an existing range of buildings and yards in various configurations, some with the benefit of cranage, good power distribution networks and generous staff parking.
Units can also be tailored to a client’s needs.
The Park benefits from 24-hour security, good perimeter fencing, and rents are amongst the most competitive in the area.
Celtech Holdings has recently embarked on a large renovation and redevelopment of the park and thus there are opportunities now for tailored solutions on incredibly competitive terms. The current plans include for new estate roads, improved yard surfacing, additional parking and landscaping, a new gatehouse and serviced office suite together with a range of new ‘starter units’
Enjoying an ideal location with excellent transport links to the M6, Heysham Port offers fast, efficient access to the Irish Sea and is a major distribution hub connecting the Isle of Man and Northern Ireland to mainland UK.
The port is close to existing industrial areas and has a wealth of experience working with nearby offshore wind, gas and nuclear energy industries. The port is at the heart of the Irish Sea RoRo hub and the facilities cater for numerous daily sailings from providers like Seatruck, Stena Line and Isle of Man Steampacket.
The port is equipped to accommodate both accompanied and un-accompanied RoRo traffic. With 24-hour access and no locks the RoRo Terminal offers 24/7 operation.
Heysham Business Park and its extremely close proximity to the Heysham Port make it a strategic facilities and services partner to shipping lines and logistics partners in general.
The Heysham to M6 Link Road, known as the Bay Gateway, completes the long awaited connection from the Heysham and Morecambe peninsula to Junction 34 of the M6, and consists of a 4.8km dual carriageway.
One year after its opening in October of 2016, the Bay Gateway was named Economic Infrastructure Project of the Year at the British Construction Industry Awards 2017.
The 4.8km, £140m project was lauded for its impact on the local economy expecting to bring a return of over £600m.
The road is used by more than 18,000 vehicles a day and is making strong, positive impacts to residents, businesses and communities around the area, as well as to the Heysham Business Park.
