Logistics park planned for Luton Vauxhall site
Vauxhall’s former aftersales warehouse in Luton, Bedfordshire, is to be transformed into a 111,500m2 industrial and logistics park after developer Goodman secured outline planning permission for the scheme.
The development is targeting a BREEAM ‘Excellent’ rating and A+ EPC, while planned sustainability features and investment in renewable energy technologies such as full rooftop solar photovoltaic panels (PV) will support customers in achieving their sustainability goals.
Nigel Dolan, Development Director at Goodman, said: “Goodman London Luton will combine sustainably-designed warehouse space with a high-quality commercial park setting, providing customers with modern facilities in an attractive workplace environment.
“The development will have access to 7MVA of power, enabling a high degree of technology and automation. We’re making a significant investment in onsite renewables including full rooftops of solar PV to drive power efficiencies for our customers and help reduce carbon emissions. Rainwater harvesting and electric vehicle infrastructure will also be provided to further support sustainable operations.”
