DPP have secured planning permission for Robert Hitchins Limited, for two schemes which together amount to over 75,000sqft of modern high-quality employment space on the outskirts of Stonehouse, Stroud.
With a gross development value of £11million, DPP coordinated and submitted the planning applications for reserved matters approval for the two sites. The sites form part of a wider mixed use residential led development. DPP had previously established key design principles through a masterplan submission before working with the client’s design team to develop the detailed design.
Michael Plimmer, Senior Development Manager at Robert Hitchins said:
Stroudwater 13 offers a great opportunity for new industrial, manufacturing and warehouse development, either on a freehold turnkey or leasehold basis, in an area which has been starved of any significant commercial development for some time due to the lack of available employment land. We are really pleased that the finer details of our scheme have now been approved enabling us to move forward.
Associate Director at DPP, Osian Roberts said:
We are delighted to have secured permission for this important proposal which will provide state of the art facilities for local firms to expand their operations and create new jobs for the local area. Its position near the M5 makes this an ideal location for an employment facility and will also provide jobs for those moving into the adjoining residential development.
DPP will now be assisting the client in discharging pre-commencement conditions to allow construction to begin in the Autumn. In addition, DPP is progressing work on another 118,000 sq ft employment scheme for Robert Hitchins Limited in Innsworth, just north of Gloucester, due for submission in the Summer.
