Plans submitted for £50m logistics park in Bellshill

KNIGHT Property Group has announced submission of a full planning application to develop a £50 million logistics park in Bellshill.

The development, to be known as Belgrave Logistics Park, will be located on the site of the former Devro manufacturing facility, which was acquired by Knight earlier this year and is currently undergoing demolition and site clearance works.

Knight’s submission to South Lanarkshire Council for the 14-acre site, which will be developed on a speculative basis, includes plans for five logistics units of varying sizes.

Each unit will have a target EPC rating of A. Knight revealed it will also boast electric car charging points, solar panels, all electric heat recovery/air conditioning to offices and water management flow restriction.

Howard Crawshaw, MD of Knight Property Group, said, “We are hugely excited to have submitted our proposals for this significant development. It is fantastic to see the redevelopment of the site moving swiftly and gaining momentum and the lodging of the application after the consultation period takes us another step along the path.

“We firmly believe the delivery of high quality logistics warehousing to the Scottish market will be well received and even more so given the location and multi access points to the motorway and road network that are accessible within minutes. Construction work should start later this year and the first units will be available in the second quarter of 2022.”

Alan Gilkison, partner at Ryden, added, “Knight has a strong track record of developing and delivering versatile and well-designed industrial and logistics units. Given the prime location and excellent connectivity, we anticipate positive demand from discerning logistics businesses. Belgrave Logistics Park is certain to be well-received.”
