Plans submitted for new industrial park in Amesbury, Wiltshire

Plans for a brand new Grade A industrial park in Amesbury, Wiltshire, have been submitted for consent to the local authority by property consultancy JLL.

Acting on behalf of RO Real Estate, JLL has put forward a detailed planning application for Helix, a development of 11 new high-quality industrial units totaling 38,000 sq ft at Solstice Park, Amesbury, Wiltshire, SP4 7QA.

An outline application for additional space of 137,000 sq ft has also been submitted.

Strategically positioned 350 metres off the A303 and offering excellent links between London and the South West as well as to the local area and wider region, Helix at Solstice Park will offer 11 new units built to a high specification and ranging in size from 3,000 to 4,000 sq ft. Carefully designed in a terraced configuration, they can easily be combined to create larger units if required.

The additional outline consent will give the developer, RO Real Estate, flexibility to deliver a wide range of warehouse and industrial units ranging in size, also with the potential to be combined into larger units.

The site is also set to benefit from the forthcoming South West Expressway work to upgrade the A303 through Wiltshire and beyond.

RO Real Estate recently acquired the nine-acre development plot from Amesbury Property Company Limited. This purchase continues the RO strategy for investing in target areas in the South of England where prospects for growth and development remain attractive.

Jonathan Manhire, associate director in JLL’s Southampton office, commented:

“The South’s industrial and logistics market continues to go from strength to strength. But across the region there is a critical lack of development land that can deliver crucial employment. So we are very excited to be working alongside RO Real Estate on the delivery of Helix which will offer a range of unit sizes to suit small and large businesses.

“Helix offers occupiers a unique opportunity to secure new Grade A industrial and warehouse units along the A303, which is a strategic location for the South and South West. Due to the high-quality specification, excellent location and limited supply within the market, we are confident that there will be substantial demand.”

David Kershaw, general manager, RO Real Estate, commented:

“In a crowded market we believe that there remains opportunity to be found in regional investment, particularly as businesses look for well located, quality and affordable space. The south of England, where much of our strategic focus has been, continues to thrive.”

“Not only is the Helix site complementary to our existing assets in the area, but it secures an opportunity that will benefit significantly from the South West Expressway infrastructure improvements planned for the coming years.”
