The Magna Park Logistics Hub Extension has succeeded at planning appeal.
The planning inquiry inspector’s decision was that permission should be granted to Gazeley to build a 320,000sqm storage and distribution centre, country park, Logistics Institute of Technology and other facilities on land at Mere Lane, Lutterworth.
The scheme will strengthen and complement the existing Magna Park Hub and the national and local economy in a part of the country known as the ‘Golden Triangle’ for this sector.
The inspector allowed the appeal on the basis that the benefits of the proposal outweighed any harm that had been identified as part of the consideration of the application and appeal. The scheme is forward-looking. It creates a sustainable logistics development with integrated economic, social and environmental benefits, whilst minimising harm.
Collborating with a multidisciplinary team, we prepared the Landscape and Visual Impact Assessment, informed the design strategy and contributed Expert Witness evidence on landscape and visual effects. The inspector found the verified views we prepared, to industry best practice, a helpful aid in decision making.
