More jobs set for Gloucestershire as Turley helps secure green light for business park
Gloucestershire is set to benefit from up to 1,250 new long-term jobs as expert developer and regeneration specialist, St. Modwen, gets the green light on plans to develop its Quedgeley East Business Park.
Turley acted as planning consultant on behalf of St. Modwen, gaining planning consent for a business park comprising approximately 935,000 sq ft of B1 (Business), B2 (General Industrial) and B8 (Storage or Distribution) space. The development, strategically located adjacent to junction 12 of the M5, was granted outline planning consent via delegated powers on 13 November 2018.
This planning consent enables St. Modwen to bring forward prime warehouse & industrial space on the 58 acre site. Due to be delivered in phases, the speculative construction of the first three units will start next year to provide a total of 178,000 sq ft of industrial and warehousing space for occupation at the end of 2019.
Pete Davies, Development Director for St. Modwen West and Wales said:
“Demand for premium quality warehouse and industrial space close to the motorway is the driving force behind our building programme for Quedgeley East Business Park. The green light to develop 935,000 sq ft will allow us to meet occupier requirements and attract significant inward investment for Gloucestershire in line with our overall purpose of changing places and creating sustainable new communities. The initial three buildings will provide 45,000 sq ft, 60,000 sq ft and 73,000 sq ft to rent. We are ready to deliver build to suit facilities up to approximately 400,000 sq ft immediately adjacent to Junction 12.”
