A hybrid application from Prologis, seeking full permission for the construction of a warehouse and outline consent for three B8 units has been recommended for the go-ahead by Daventry District Council.
The application site comprises three agricultural fields on the north western edge of Daventry at Apex Park.
A warehouse is to be constructed on ‘site A’ and is intended for Cummins, which designs manufactures and distributes engines, filtration and power generation products. Its manufacturing functions are currently based at Royal Oak Industrial estate in Daventry with two other storage/distribution units on the Heartlands Business Park and Sopwith Way.
The proposed unit would consolidate storage and distribution facilities to the site at Apex Park with manufacturing being retained at Royal Oak. The building on site A will be a 40,263 sqm distribution building.
The development of site A is for a local manufacturing company is expected to create employment opportunities over and above the 1300 jobs already supported by the company. The development of the application site will create around 600 jobs during operation with additional employment opportunities of up to 378 jobs being created during the development phase.
Meanwhile three units are proposed for ‘site B’. The Outline application for ‘site B’ is speculative at this stage.
