Markham Vale is Derbyshire’s flagship regeneration scheme and is a development partnership between HBD and Derbyshire County Council.

The scheme is a 200-acre business park with direct access to the M1 motorway via a dedicated junction, J29a. This prime development site now has limited space remaining for industrial, warehouse, hotel, office or retail builds.

The site also accommodates a flagship Environment Centre (home to a range of firms from the environmental technology related centre) and Waterloo Court.

Additional completed schemes include occupiers such as Great Bear, Marston’s Pubs, Ferdinand Bilstein, Grangers Ltd and Euro Garages.

Continued growth for Markham Vale in 2020 and 2021

In January 2020, Catering Projects, based in Waterloo Court, acquired a second unit across the road in Wilson Business Park, as well as hiring four new staff members, including an Administration Assistant apprentice from Chesterfield College. QCR Recycling Equipment also moved in to Unit 5 along with their sister company Mypower Ltd.

In May 2020, Goodward Construction, a commercial construction company from Derbyshire, began work on the site which will house a new workshop and offices for Transcare 28 Ltd’s onsite and workshop-based maintenance services for commercial vehicle operators.

In June 2020, work to build two large new industrial units began following a £25 million deal. The units, measuring 221,518 square feet and 75,000 square feet, are being built on the north side of the business and logistics park and will be available to purchase or lease.
