Business Park Masterplan
Outline planning application for the erection of up to 1,000,000 ft² of Class B8 (storage and distribution) employment space and associated infrastructure.
The specific requirements for individual buildings will be dictated by occupier requirements (at reserved matters stage) and, therefore, the proposed scheme seeks to secure the principle of development (use) and key parameters including maximum floor areas, footprints and levels / heights.
The planning application is accompanied by an illustrative masterplan in order to demonstrate how the phases of development could relate to each other and are coordinated by a full suite of technical reports that assess the parameters of the proposal.
Angus Meek Architects was commissioned to provide an initial site analysis and prepare conceptual coverage proposals for this strategic employment site.
Alternatives considered include distribution units from 200,000 to 750,000 ft² in addition to a more traditional business park development providing a full range of accommodation from terraces of starter industrial units to headquarters office buildings.
