Plans lodged for £90m logistics hub in Leicestershire

A major planning application for a £90 million logistics hub which will also deliver the Enderby Relief Road has been submitted by local family trust The Drummond Estate and partner Landchain.

The proposals would create a new logistics destination with 1,147m sq ft of advanced warehouse and distribution space and provides for a specialised Logistics Training Centre, which would assist in plugging the growing skills-gap for high tech logistics employees across the region.

The development proposes buildings ranging from 14,000 sq m to 46,000 sq m, with the flexibility to further sub-divide plots to suit individual occupier’s needs.

It aims to set new environmental standards for industrial development in the region.

Speaking on behalf of The Drummond Estate, Martin Ward said: “The new development will create thousands of local jobs and we hope the Training Centre will assist those looking to upskill within today’s high-tech logistics sector.

“It will also deliver the Enderby Relief Road around the village which has been a long-held ambition of the authorities and many local people.”

Ben Grinnall for Landchain added: “These proposals represent an exciting new phase in the growth of logistics facilities in the region. Logistics is a fast growing and rapidly changing sector that helps underpin our economy.

“The Enderby Logistics Hub is an excellent opportunity to attract high quality businesses to the area and help consolidate the location as the heart of the industry.”

The planning applications for the Enderby Logistics Hub and the Enderby Relief Road were submitted on February 18th and the local authority will now consider the applications with a decision on the applications due by Summer 2019.
