Controvesial Hams Hall scheme revived

Prologis and electricity company e.on have revived controversial plans for a Midlands warehouse site.

The duo have applied for permission to develop logistics floorspace on 48 acres at the Hams Hall 2 power station, Coleshill. The site is in green belt land.

Previous attempts to win consent for the site failed in 2004, 2006 and 2012, but new planning rules mean the case could quickly go to ministers, who are more likely to approve it.

The application – to North Warwickshire Council – is expected to be decided in late October.

The power station, which closed in 1992, is close to Junction 9 of the M42 and junction 4 of the M6 motorway. The site is also close to the proposed HS2 high speed rail line and the Hams Hall multi-modal interchange.

The latest proposal envisages 914,000 sq ft of logistics development.

In a separate move, North Warwickshire has approved plans for a 345,000 sq ft development at the Core 42 site close to Birch coppice, at junction 10 of the M42 motorway.

Developers are Hoggetts Estates.
