Decision due on job creating industrial scheme

Planning bosses are due to make a decision tomorrow on proposals for a Birmingham industrial scheme which could create 70 jobs.

Hermes Investment Management has lodged plans to develop land on Chester Road within Erdington Industrial Park.

Until 2012, there was a factory/warehousing unit on the site which was demolished and consent granted for temporary vehicle parking purposes.

The site was used for staff car parking for Jaguar Land Rover until alternative staff car parking was been provided within a new multi-story car park on Kingsbury Road.

The plans for the site comprise an industrial building split into two units, totalling around 95,000 sq ft.

Birmingham City Council’s planning committee is expected to make its decision when it meets tomorrow (Feb 2).
