Planning, EIA & design services for High Bay Cold Store Warehouse & Distribution Unit

As part of our broad range of capabilities, Sirius Planning were commissioned to provide lead planning and design services for a brand new state of the art, high bay chilled, refrigeration & distribution unit in the East Midlands.

Located on part of a wider ‘Energy Park’, the 35,000 sqm warehouse facility will be powered by low carbon renewable energy provided by adjacent wind and solar developments.  Occupying a development area of some 10ha, at full capacity the building will have a storage capacity of approximately 130,000 tonnes, the equivalent of over 1 million domestic freezers.

As part of an ‘energy eco-cycle’, the chilling effect of the building will generate substantial volumes of heat which can be supplied to future occupiers of the energy park, for use in sectors such as advance food production.

Our input…

Our team of planning and design experts were responsible for preparing the planning application and carrying out an eia, which included environmental and technical assessments necessary to support the request for development consent.

With significant experience of conducting stakeholder consultations, our work included organising a public exhibition event and carrying out consultation with the public and local politicians, which we performed as part of the engagement community element of the project.

Working in partnership with one of the top 10 global supply chain logistic & distribution companies, combining a greenfield location, site analysis and mindful of building functionality, design options were generated by Sirius to create a sustainable building design.

As part of an extensive EIA process, technical and environmental assessments carried out to support the planning application submission included:

  • Landscape and Visual Impact
  • Noise & Vibration
  • Cultural Heritage & Historic Environment
  • Ecology
  • Land Quality
  • Transport
  • Hydrology & Hydrogeology
  • Air Quality
  • Socio-economic
