Expansion of Carnforth development plans

SCP Investments has proposed an additional 90,000 sq ft of warehousing in Carnforth, to be built alongside a Porsche Centre approved last year.

A hybrid planning application has been submitted to Lancaster City Council by planner Barton Willmore, for the proposed development to be built off Kellet Road, next to the M6.

A landscaping scheme is included in the plans, to provide greater biodiversity and a buffer between the development and the motorway.

Dan Mitchell, partner at Barton Willmore, said: “There is a significant shortfall of high-quality employment opportunities in North Lancashire. The application will provide much needed floorspace for indigenous local businesses and inward investment. We have worked closely with Carnforth Town Council who have welcomed the investment in the town.”

Last year, Lancaster City Council approved plans between junction 35 of the M6 and Kellet Road to include a showroom workshop and MOT testing facility, together with a new access off the A601. The development is to support the relocation and expansion of Porsche franchisee Parker & Parker’s current centre, located at Longpool, Kendal.

Agents for the employment space are Preston O’Herlihy and Armistead Barnett.
