Marston Gate

This greenfield site was identified as expansion land for the existing Marston Gate distribution park, very close to Junction 13 of the M1, to the east of Milton Keynes.

In the early stages, we recommended that the site be pursued through the emerging local development plan. Turley prepared the submission document and attended the technical working group meeting, in order to promote the case for the additional floorspace. We overcame concerns over the availability of labour and the proximity of nearby housing, and the allocation was successfully made.

We prepared an outline planning application that sought to agree the physical parameters for development. We helped assemble the multi-disciplinary team and managed the EIA screening request.

We effectively negotiated the Section 106 obligation, and secured a flexible outline planning permission.
