Harratts Group has received planning to build a £3 million Honda showroom and headquarters in Wakefield.
A new two-storey, purpose-built Honda dealership of 12,000sqft would be constructed on the land at Calder Park, with a new headquarters and suite of offices built adjacent. It will be the largest construction project in the motor group’s 45-year history.
With work pencilled to start in June, it is hoped the new Honda dealership and headquarters will be open by December 2011, with at least 25 new jobs created.
Shaun Harratt, Harratts managing director, said: “This represents the most significant construction project in our history and a very exciting time for us as we continue our expansion.
“We are delighted to be able to create 25 new jobs in the area as we prepare to open our latest site and our new purpose-built headquarters will also serve to support our continued growth in the region.”
