NEW JOBS will be created when a family-run motor group builds a brand new showroom.

Harratts, which runs 14 dealerships across Yorkshire, has just been granted planning permission for a new Honda dealership and headquarters at Calder Park.

The £3m development, which it hopes to open in December, is set to create 25 new jobs.

It will be the largest construction project in the motor group’s 45-year history.

Shaun Harratt, managing director, said: “Today’s announcement 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 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.”

The group said it will start work on the new development, which will include a 12,000 sq ft, two-storey dealership with adjacent offices, this month.
