Flexible build-to-suit opportunities in the heart of the Midlands

G-Park Ashby de la Zouch is a 48-acre development with secured outline planning permission for the development of up to 753,477 SQ FT of warehouse space.  The planning consent allows for the development of either one or two units depending on customer requirements.

The prime development site is centrally located in North West Leicestershire at the heart of the Golden Triangle for logistics. The site, which was formerly
occupied by ‚The Lounge Coal Preparation and Disposal Point‘, is being brought forward to be re-developed to provide Grade A modern logistics space in a prime location. The park benefits from excellent access being directly adjacent to the A42 and A511 with links to the M42 to the South, and M1 and East Midlands Airport 10 miles to the North East.

The new unit(s) will be built to GLP’s enhanced specification including an 18 M clear internal height. In line with GLP’s sustainability commitment, the development will be built to BREEAM UK Excellent level standards and will include a range of innovative environmental features, such as rainwater harvesting and an online energy dashboard to help customers proactively manage their energy consumption.

Strategic Location

Ashby serves as a prime location for logistics, being home to a number of leading occupiers and well known brands including Amazon, CEVA, Siemens, Howard Tenens, H K Wentworth and Electrolube who all benefit from an abundant local labour supply and excellent transport connections.

The vacant brownfield site directly adjoins the strategic road network, which makes it prime for logistics. The Transport Assessment concludes that there is capacity within the highway network to accommodate the development.

The proposed scheme includes an access from Corkscrew Lane, providing a more direct link to the A511 and A42. Additionally, a travel/traffic study has been undertaken to explore the travel patterns and behaviour of employees to be assessed in order to identify the need for a potential shuttle bus service, as a means of reducing car use.
