Exciting plans have been submitted to construct new business premises and create new jobs in a Warwickshire town.
AC Lloyd Commercial, whose headquarters are in Warwick, has applied for outline planning permission to Stratford-on-Avon District Council for the 285,000 sq ft scheme in Southam, working in partnership with the landowners and their advisors, Savills.
The site is situated next to the Holywell Business Park on Leamington Road and could potentially create up to 500 jobs.
Mark Edwards, Managing Director at AC Lloyd Commercial, said this development would help Southam’s business community to continue to thrive.
“We’re looking forward to working with Stratford-on-Avon District Council and the local community to bring forward this exciting employment opportunity on a strategically well-located site,” he said.
“The feedback from the pre-application consultation has on the whole been positive. We have amended the proposals to address a number of the concerns that were raised.
“The development would create a significant number of temporary and permanent jobs and strengthen the local economy.
“Sites such as this would be perfect for small and medium businesses wanting to expand or move from a home-based environment into a commercial park along with all the associated benefits that brings.”
The planning application is expected to be discussed by Stratford-on-Avon District’s Council’s planning committee later this year.
