Developer Robert Hitchins is looking to build two new units at his Stroudwater 13 business park.
The two 53,500 square foot and 22,000 square foot units have the potential to provide space for hundreds of new jobs in a prime location.
The six-acre site, close to J13 of the M5 and just off the A419, already has planning permission for uses E (g), B2 and B8 as part of the mixed-use development of Great Oldbury, which is rapidly taking shape west of Stonehouse, near Stroud.
New access and service roads to the Great Oldbury business park and wider development are now complete and Michael Plimmer, Senior Director of Development at Robert Hitchins, says it’s time to move forward with the employment component of the plan.
He said: “We are really delighted to be able to move forward with the first phase of our Stroudwater 13 development.
“It offers an excellent opportunity for new industrial, manufacturing and warehouse developments, whether freehold or leasehold, in an area that has been deprived of any significant commercial development for some time due to lack of land. jobs available.
“The infrastructure is complete and the site has recently been cleared and ready for development. We hope to be able to deliver the buildings in the first quarter of 2023.
“We already have good occupant interest in both business units of trading post, storage and distribution and manufacturing. “
The Oldends Lane site is prominently located next to a new roundabout on the new Stroudwater link road to the Great Oldbury mixed-use project which includes 1,300 housing units and a local center.
It is an extension of the Stroudwater Business Park, where companies such as Schlumberger, Renishaw, Dairy Crest, Dentsply and Delphi are making it an established site for the main occupants.
It also adjoins the new £ 15million cheese factory and the company headquarters being built for Dairy Partners at Stroudwater Business Park.
The agents are Cushman and Wakefield and Alder King.
Adrian Rowley, partner at Alder King, said: “This land is opening up at a time when there is a huge shortage of job sites available. Stroudwater has enjoyed great success over the past few decades and there are now only a handful of sites left that will become available – this is one of them. “
Chris Yates, Partner at Cushman & Wakefield, declared: “With the new road link serving this extension of the Business Park, it provides for two immediately deliverable development sites capable of meeting the strong demand of the regional mid-box market.
“It is particularly noteworthy that this development will uniquely meet the needs of freehold and leasehold occupants, unlike the majority of region-wide similar scale development sites which are lease only. “
