VALUE: £16 Million

Duration: Ongoing development

Trident Park has been successfully developed by Barnfield over the last few years into a major hub for prestigious car showrooms and motorcycle’s and more recently the high quality offices of Trident Office Park.  The site has been developed from a former playing fields forming part of the previous power station site.

The site was highly contaminated and required careful remediation. Much discussion took place with both Hyndburn and Blackburn Council as the borough boundaries ran right through the middle of the site making for a complex development.

A stream ran through the site and a partnership with the Environment Agency created a wildlife and wetlands corridor. The Leeds and Liverpool Canal bounded one side of the site and by way of a 106 agreement we funded the reinstatement of the canal footpath together with works to the canal wall.

The site frontage involved a substantial amount of road works to the existing trunk road including a traffic light junction all by way of a 278 agreement.

The site is now home to a number of car dealerships including Volkswagen, Toyota, Audi, BMW, BMW Mini, a motorcycle dealership and a 20 unit office village. Five acres are yet to be developed.
