This is an exciting opportunity for investors and developers to be involved with a major regeneration and infrastructure project close to the rapidly growing Northern town of Doncaster, which is renowned for its logistics expertise and transport links. This will involve the creation of up to 3,100 new homes (by 2035), plus new retail, learning and healthcare facilities, as well as green open spaces.
Situated in a convenient and well-connected location, just off J5 of the M18 motorway, the Unity Project will see the transformational development of a 250-hectare brownfield site.
Construction is already well underway of a new link road which connects the Unity Project to the east-coast ports at Immingham, Hull and Grimsby and it is within close proximity to Doncaster Sheffield Airport, which means this is an attractive opportunity for logistics in particular.
- Over 3,100 homes
- 180 acres of commercial development (B1, B2 & B8) and manufacturing space
- 650MW power station (planning permission granted)
- A 500-berth marina (with planning consent)
The Unity Project is set to generate over 6,000 jobs, including the creation of a town centre, a transport interchange, school and community.
The project is committed to providing green infrastructure, networks, spaces and places for the purposes of maintaining its ecological assets and habitats and has the potential to be one of the most advanced carbon-capture and storage facilities in Europe, with associated education and research facilities.
Doncaster Council is the local authority that administers planning applications for the Unity project. The project is located within the Sheffield City Region LEP area, within the Northern Powerhouse.
