St. Modwen has submitted a detailed planning application to extend Centurion Park in Tamworth, bringing forward employment opportunities to the area.
Outline planning consent was granted in June 2014 to allow the 20 acre site to come forward for employment uses in order to build on the success of the existing adjacent units, which are let to a range of businesses.
Now, in response to demand for high quality units, the UK’s leading regeneration specialist is progressing plans to create two new industrial buildings sized at 52,500sq ft to 157,000sq ft.
Award winning Midlands architect Roberts Limbrick has submitted designs on behalf of St. Modwen for two speculative buildings with associated services, parking and offices. With the benefit of consent, groundworks could begin as early as June to prepare the site for construction.
Jonathan Green, development surveyor at St. Modwen, said: “Centurion Park is one of the most sought after locations in the Midlands region due to its superb transport links. Following a recent number of transactions, the scheme is fully occupied.
“This lack of stock, combined with a strengthening market has enabled us to accelerate plans for our extension of Centurion Park. We are already receiving calls from interested parties which will in turn trigger employment opportunities for light industrial, storage and distribution industries. With the benefit of a detailed consent we will be able to start to deliver new facilities in the summer.”
Centurion Park has superb transport links next to junction ten of the M42 where it meets the A5. Interested parties should contact Savills on 0121 634 8402.
