Verdant Regeneration is promoting land at the former Stanton Ironworks site for the development of a new manufacturing and logistics hub called New Stanton Park. This will encompass a range of units of up to 261,471 square metres of industrial space, covering 200 acres of brownfield land between Stanton-by-Dale and Ilkeston, Derbyshire.
New Stanton Park rail has a direct and operational link to the Midland Mainline railway, offering the potential for the site to become a key distribution point for materials being imported and exported efficiently throughout the UK and beyond.
New Stanton Park site has already been identified by Erewash Borough Council as a key regeneration site in their Core Strategy.
Verdant Regeneration will work closely with Erewash Borough Council and a wide range of stakeholders to prepare a planning application which offers significant economic development and employment in a scheme which also retains much of the green open space and waterways within the site.
