Plans for a new warehouse unit at Rowena Park in Rothley, Leicestershire, have been submitted to Charnwood Borough Council.
APAC Group Ltd, the importer and distributor of floristry, wedding, party and horticultural products, are behind the 90,000 sq ft warehouse.
72 car parking spaces would be provided alongside 21 HGV spaces and 22 cycle spaces.
Founded in the 1970s, APAC Group is based in Leicester and has offices in China. Its products are represented by retailers such as Tesco, ASDA, Morrisons, Wilkinsons, Aldi, Marks and Spencer, Hobbycraft and The Range.
A document submitted to council by Stephen George + Partners LLP on behalf of the applicant says: “The proposed development has been carefully assessed and designed having regard to the constraints and opportunities of the site, as well as the ‘brief’ of the
occupying business: APAC Retail.
“A full account of the planning background has been undertaken, and the proposed development is consistent with the previously approved and now constructed schemes within the site.
“The development therefore provides a high quality designed scheme, which will enable an important economic investment to be delivered on the Rowena Park site.”
