Kier Property has achieved planning consent for phase II to develop 8.9 acres at Saltbox Business Park in Bognor Regis.
Kier’s plans will see 200,000 sq ft of modern, high quality, industrial space developed across 11 units, ranging between 3,000 – 50,000 sq ft.
Three units will be developed under the Logistics City brand and eight units under the Trade City brand, with some units being combined to suit occupier requirements.
Existing occupiers at Saltbox include Rolls Royce, Tesco, B&M, B&Q, Warburtons, Aldi and Greggs and Starbucks drive-thru. The new units will be marketed as freehold and leasehold and construction is planned to commence early in the new year.
Leigh Thomas, managing director for Kier Property commented: “Bognor Regis was our first acquisition under our new PGIM industrial joint venture. We put sustainability at the heart of all our developments and we are targeting an EPC Rating A and BREEAM rating of Very Good here.
“Our units offer electric vehicle charging, solar PV panels, grade A office space and high-quality exterior finishes.”
The site lies within the designated area of Enterprise Bognor Regis, which is a 70-hectare commercial and employment development opportunity earmarked as the premier commercial development site in coastal West Sussex. It has access to the ports of Portsmouth and Southampton to the West and the Shoreham commercial port and town of Brighton to the East.
