Planning Application Granted for Speculative Industrial Development at Airfield 55, Aldridge

Leading Midlands's commercial developer, Trebor Developments and funding partner, Kay Properties (Midlands) Limited, have achieved detailed planning consent for their speculative 55,000 sq ft, high quality, industrial unit on the 3.34 acre site in Aldridge.

The project which benefits from grant funding provided through the Black Country LEP, will commence on site in the next few weeks and provide quality industrial premises (B2 manufacturing or B8 distribution) by early 2018.

Bob Tattrie, Managing Partner for Trebor Developments, commented on behalf of the partners, "We are delighted to have secured planning and now be in a position to commence construction.  We will be announcing the selected contractor to build the premises shortly.  This speculative 55,000 sq ft development responds to a real gap in the Midlands market for quality industrial accommodation in this size bracket.  The building is available to lease and we expect strong interest".

Airfield 55 is being marketed by joint agents, BNP Paribas, Birmingham Office (Andrew Cosnett) and Burley Browne, Birmingham Office (Mark Fitzpatrick).
