Plans tabled for 35,800 sq ft Lancaster industrial
Derwent Lodge Estates has earmarked the two-acre brownfield plot at Europa Way within Lune Business Park for the delivery of 14 commercial units.
Plans have been lodged with Lancaster City Council for the development, which would provide 35,800 sq ft of industrial space across two buildings.
The Candy Lofthouse Architects-designed scheme would feature a larger 25,200 sq ft warehouse, split into 10 two-storey units.
Next door, the smaller warehouse would provide four units totalling 10,600 sq ft of floorspace.
Visitors would have access to 74 car parking spaces, including 14 accessible bays. There would also be 12 cycle spaces provided.
The development has been designed to “tidy up the currently unkempt site on the edge of Lune Industrial Estate” while creating new jobs and benefitting the local economy, according to a planning statement.
Hurstwood Holdings acquired the larger 23-acre site in 2005 for its redevelopment, having completed the first phase of works in June to deliver 34,000 sq ft of speculative industrial units.
A convenience store, nursery, café, and pharmacy will also be created in later phases.
Broadgrove Planning & Development is advising Derwent Lodge on its proposals for the business park. the project team also includes NJD Environmental Associates, Cheshire Woodlands, PG Consulting, Trevor Bridge Associates, and Eddisons.
