Green light for logistics development

Plans for a 113,000 sq ft warehouse development at a site in Darlaston near Wednesbury have been given the green light.

The seven acre scheme – to be marketed as Parallel 113, is situated off the A4038 Darlaston Road.

The scheme is to be developed speculatively with site clearance work staring in January and the unit will be ready for occupation in the Spring of 2022.

The building will comprise 107,350 sq ft warehouse/logistics accommodation together with 5,650 sq ft of first floor office accommodation.

St Francis Group’s development director Gareth Williams said: “This is a significant commitment to Walsall, the Black Country Enterprise Zone and to the greater Birmingham area. It shows our faith in the continued occupier story of increasing demand seen against dwindling stock and we expect to be delivering another high-quality scheme very soon.”

Savills and JLL are jointly appointed to market the site.
