PLP secures planning for huge Milton Keynes logistics centre
Developer Peel L&P (PLP) has been granted detailed planning consent for a single cross-dock unit of approximately 93,000m2, which the company said makes it the largest immediately deliverable logistics building in the UK.
The 44-acre second phase of PLP MK, is said to be the only fully consented, fully serviced and plateaued site in the southern M1 corridor that can deliver a facility of this scale.
The development boasts a delivery period of only 9 months from construction start. PLP are hoping to start construction in the near future on a pre-let or speculative basis.
This state-of-the-art industrial and logistics facility will follow PLP’s Carbon Net Zero (CNZ) framework, combining CNZ construction with CNZ ready design, adhering to the UK Green Building Council’s Net Zero Buildings Framework. This standard will enable future customers to achieve CNZ operation by utilising built-in renewable energy features and by procuring appropriate renewable energy supplies.
Edward Jackson Development Director at PLP: “It is incredibly exciting to receive planning consent to deliver such a rare landmark facility. Not only is the scale unprecedented for the South East, but the specification is unmatched. Our CNZ framework will ensure we exceed expectations of modern logistics customers. When finished PLP MK will be a truly world-class business park.”
