Plans for Midlands warehouse scheme submitted to Worcester Council

Plans for Midlands warehouse scheme submitted to Worcester Council

Plans for a 1.5m sq ft Midlands warehouse scheme – including a 205,000 sq ft speculative first phase - have been submitted to Worcester City council.
The development at Worcester Six is being promoted by Liberty Property Trust and Stoford Developments.

 

Subject to detailed planning permission, the units of 160,000 sq ft and 45,000 sq ft will be the first to be built at Worcester Six which is close to junction 6 of the M5 motorway.

Work on the two units could be complete by spring 2017.

Worcester County Council expects the wider £120 million park to create around 5,000 jobs once the development is complete. Work on a £10 million infrastructure package is underway.

Stoford director Gerard Ludlow said:  “This is the first large scale speculative development in the Worcester area for more than 10 years and clearly demonstrates confidence in Worcester Six.”

Andrew Blevins, managing director of Liberty Property Trust, added: “We are targeting tenants across the greater Midlands market as well as the local market and this first phase will give us the best opportunity to attract and secure inward investment into the region and to nurture local technology-based businesses.”

Strutt & Parker and Harris Lamb are joint agents.
