Planning granted for warehouse & distribution centre at Melton West business park

Full planning permission has been granted for the development of a major warehouse and distribution centre at Melton West business park.

The 123,000 sq ft facility owned by developer Wykeland Group is fully in keeping with and complementary to existing employment uses at Melton West and will deliver on the long-standing vision of the East Riding of Yorkshire Council Local Plan.

“The land has been zoned for employment use in the Local Plan since 1996 and, having acquired this part of the site in 2018 and incorporated it within our Melton West business park, we are pleased we are now able to deliver on its potential,” said Wykeland Managing Director Dominic Gibbons.

“This approval paves the way for a very significant inward investment, by a global logistics operation, which will bring hundreds of new jobs to the area.

“We have been very pleased to work with the end user, from inception through to planning, and will now move to the construction phase.

“We plan to appoint contractors to begin work on site before Christmas with the construction of a new roundabout on Brickyard Lane, to facilitate access to and from the A63.

“This will be followed by the start of work on the warehouse and distribution centre and ancillary facilities early in the new year and we envisage the facility will be operational by next summer.”

He added: “As with all our developments, we will continue to keep the local community fully informed and engaged as this scheme moves forward and delivers a major boost to the regional economy.”

Melton West Business Park covers 200 acres with 800,000 sq ft of completed development. Leading businesses on site including Heron Foods, generator manufacturer Allam Marine and shower maker Kohler Mira.

A further 150,000 sq ft of development is currently under construction, including a new Humberside Police command and control centre and operational support building, with detailed planning consent in place for an additional 100,000 sq ft.
