New contract HGV parking site to open in Yorkshire

New HGV contract spaces will be available in Featherstone in Yorkshire from 1 September, it has been announced.

The spaces are in Onward Park in Featherstone, and will be provided by warehousing supplier Onward Holdings Ltd. The site is within 2.5 miles of junction 31 of the M62. The site has toilet facilities.

The large capacity of the site is expected to appeal to HGV fleet operators and owner-drivers who need a regular facility to store their vehicles securely overnight or for a variable amount of time. The site has space for a sizable number of HGVs with further capacity expected in the future. Vehicle safety is paramount at the site which is equipped with electronic gates, CCTV cameras and a full remote monitoring system.

Various contract options are available, including monthly and discounted annual contracts. Weekly parking contracts will start at £39 plus VAT per week.

Onward Holdings’ managing director, Neil Storey, said: “Many businesses are looking to have their fleets close to key routes in order to cut transportation time and costs. We aim to rescue them from the current shortage of responsible, highly-secure HGV parking in the area. We are offering flexible, competitively priced terms which should help companies tap more easily into the improving economic situation in the north.”

Onward Holdings said it has already had enquiries from businesses in North Yorkshire and the Southeast of England that are looking to develop or expand in the North of England.
