Green light for huge new warehouse scheme that will create 1,000 jobs
Developer GLP has secured planning permission for a 736,000 sq ft of warehouse space at G-Park Ashby in Leicestershire.
The planning consent allows for the development of either one or two units depending on customer requirements.
Gwyn Stubbings, planning director, GLP, said: “The proposals to redevelop a brownfield site will deliver significant economic benefits to the area including improved local infrastructure and create almost 1,000 new jobs, at a time when the need for logistics has never been greater. The logistics industry will continue to play a vital and important role in supporting the economic recovery in the UK and this development will respond to the significant outstanding demand for modern and sustainable warehouse space.”
Planning and development consultancy Turley provided planning, strategic communications, EIA, and sustainability services for the scheme.
