A West Yorkshire GP surgery and pharmacy has signed on to join a redevelopment scheme at a historic textiles mill.

Colne Valley Group Practice is set to occupy a 6,000 ground floor unit at The Globe Slaithwaite near Huddersfield.

The group has agreed a 15 year lease with Hartley Property Trust Ltd for the space, which sits in the former textile mill site.

Kirsty Hull, practice manager at Colne Valley Group Practice commented: “We are looking forward to our move.

“The new site will provide better accessibility to all our patients. It will offer additional consultation rooms and will also have a larger waiting room, enhancing patient privacy and confidentiality.”

Originally built in 1887 for textiles production, The Globe is currently undergoing redevelopment to provide over 60,000 sq ft of mixed-use accommodation, with 45,000 sq ft to be used as The Globe Innovation Centre with offices, laboratory, research and development space.

In addition, around 7,500 sq ft is to be dedicated to an artisan food hall with a further 5,000 sq ft available for convenience and retail use.

A spokesperson for Hartley Property Trust added: “We are delighted to announce this deal with Colne Valley Group Medical Practice as our anchor tenant at The Globe.

“It is the catalyst for us to launch the scheme as a centre for a modern medical practice, state of the art innovation centre and complemented by a unique artisan food hall that is befitting to the village’s charming and unpretentious reputation for local produce.

“All five floors are ready to be fitted out for immediate availability with flexible options for potential new occupiers.”
