Barberry reveals £28m development plans

Barberry Industrial has announced plans to develop three units at a prime West Midlands business park in a £28m project.

Barberry’s proposals to build industrial/logistics units of 47,750 sq. ft, 62,000 sq. ft and 113,000 sq. ft at Hilton Cross Business Park, just off junction one of the M54 near Wolverhampton, would bring much-needed investment and jobs to the region.

The units will be built to exacting energy efficiency and sustainability levels, to include photovoltaic cells on the south facing slopes of the roof and provisions for electric charging points.

The West Midlands-based property investor and developer has been selected by landowner South Staffordshire Council as the preferred purchaser of the last two remaining plots on the business park.

Barberry has submitted a detailed planning application to South Staffordshire District Council.

‘We are very pleased to announce that we have been selected as purchaser for this prime site at junction 1 of the M54 at Wolverhampton, based upon our track record and delivery of previous projects,’ said development director, Jon Robinson.

‘We have submitted a detailed planning application this week for the development of three high quality manufacturing/logistics units, with a view to securing planning and enabling us to start construction on site in Q2 2021.

‘We have an excellent working relationship with South Staffordshire Council and we are looking forward to working with them to deliver this prime motorway-connected manufacturing/logistics scheme of more than 227,750 sq. ft of self-contained, high quality accommodation to help satisfy demand in the mid-box sector.’

The leader of South Staffordshire Council, Cllr Brian Edwards added: ‘When the council acquired the land at Hilton Cross we were always very keen to see it developed to bring jobs and growth to South Staffordshire and, subject to planning permission, I’m delighted that this should hopefully be the case.’
