Proposals put forward to create a new distribution and storage hub in Daventry could bring as many as 760 jobs to the local area, according to its developer.

The plans have been submitted for the former site of the Ford Sports and Social Club on the Royal Oak Industrial Estate, which has remained empty for three years.

Located to the north of the existing distribution centre of the car giant, the plans for the redevelopment of the current 297,966 sq. ft. warehouse have already received permission for outline planning from Daventry District Council earlier this year.

Under the proposal, the developers would create a 16-metre high facility. As well as widescale state-of-the-art  warehouse flooring  warehouse flooring and facilities, the development would also see  office flooring  office flooring installed. A large parking lot will also be created, able to cater for 230 cars, 64 bikes and 120 HGVs.

Once built, the developers expect a large multinational organisation to take up residence at the site, which would be most likely be used as a national distribution centre.

A planning report submitted with the plans to Daventry District Council read:

“The development… would deliver economic growth within an area designated for industrial development, provide acceptable access arrangements and be appropriately located within the site so as to have an acceptable cumulative visual impact on the special landscape area.”

The report also takes into consideration environmental considerations, with permission to grant approval being decided upon later in the year by the council’s planning committee.
