Put your business on the map

Located close to the M1 motorway (junction 37) just north of Sheffield, Barnsley enjoys excellent road, rail and air links to the rest of the UK and internationally. The Ashroyd and Shortwood Business Park is located close to here at junction 36, providing development opportunities for light industrial and manufacturing businesses. This site is particularly suited to small and medium-sized businesses looking to grow in niche markets, who will benefit from clustering with similar-sized businesses in complementary sectors. Parts of this site have also been earmarked for Enterprise Support Incentives in the shape of Business Rate Relief within the Sheffield City Region Enterprise Zone. Qualifying businesses in the region’s target sectors that locate here will benefit from discounts on business rates which could be worth as much as £275,000 over five years.
