HARRIS LAMB SECURES PERMISSION FOR POTTER SPACE FOR NEW INDUSTRIAL ESTATE IN CUTNALL GREEN

Planning consultants at Harris Lamb have secured permission for an industrial development in Cutnall Green.

Acting on behalf of Potter Group Holdings, the business planning consultancy team prepared proposals to build new units, along with car parking, estate roads, a loading area and the associated infrastructure in Rushock and submitted them to Wychavon District Council.

Simon Hawley, who oversaw the application, said: “This site falls within an established employment area close to Cutnall Green. The wider site was a former MoD facility, with a number of the existing buildings dating back to the 1940’s. All the buildings on site of note are currently occupied and expansion space is required for existing and new occupiers.

“Over the next few years, our client intends to build five new industrial units, with a floor-space of circa 11,000 sq m, constructed along with support roads and approximately 90 car parking spaces, to enable the site to continue to thrive.”

Simon said that while there had been some objection from local parish councils regarding increased traffic on the A442, visual impact and over-development of the countryside, planning officers had agreed that such a development fell within the legitimate restrictions of building within the Green Belt and that the buildings’ construction would be sensitive to the surrounding environment.

Matthew Lamb, managing director of the Potter Group, commented: “The new development confirms our commitment to delivering high quality new premises in a region particularly short of expansion space.  We look forward to commencing work on the development in the near future.”
