Gatwick logistics park expansion gets green light
Believed to be the largest planned unit in the Gatwick area for more than a decade, St. Modwen has revised its initial outline consent with detailed plans to create a significantly taller building with an internal height of 12.5m.
The company said the additional 4.5m height will cater to market demand, enabling more space for warehouse racking and the potential for additional mezzanine floor space.
The new unit will have 24-hour access, seven dock level loading doors and a 50m deep secure service yard, which St Modwen said will be ideal for an airport-related UK logistics business.
Strategically located adjacent to Junction 10 of the M23, serving both Gatwick and Crawley, the logistics park also has easy access to the M25 and the South Coast.
David McGougan, Senior Development Manager at St. Modwen, said: “Our confidence in the park is clear and securing planning for a further warehouse in the area evidences this.”
William Merrett, Senior Associate Director at BNP Paribas Real Estate, agents for St. Modwen Park Gatwick, added: “With Gatwick Airport just over a 10-minute drive away, this new unit will provide a prime location for a leading industrial and logistics business. We have confidence in the scheme and look forward to welcoming an occupier keen to either relocate or expand into the popular area.”
