This will be the first food showcase of its kind in the UK and will be located over 550 hectares (1359 acres) which will deliver 160,000 square metres (1.7 million square feet) of retail, commercial, leisure, educational space and research space.
The development site sits adjacent to the A1M motorway, the main arterial route between Edinburgh and London and sits within the Leeds City Region. The location is strategically located between York, Leeds and Harrogate, offering excellent transport links with regional, national and international connectivity through Leeds Bradford Airport.
Future park will showcase a whole range of innovative technologies from home and abroad with a special focus towards modern methods of construction (MMC), agriculture and environmental sectors. British produce and manufacturing will be at the heart of the development to increase the export market for British Food and Drink.
The project benefits from off grid green energy from the neighbouring waste to energy plant ensuring sustainable renewable energy use. Future Park will be built and strive to become the most energy efficient commercial park in the U.K.
