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.
