Approval recommended for controversial site

Warwick Council and Coventry council planners have recommended approval of a £250m industrial logistics scheme in Coventry.

The 4.4 million sq ft scheme known as Coventry Gateway is considered highly controversial because much of it is proposed on green belt land.

The scheme is to the south of Coventry, close to the established Middlemarch Business Park, alongside the A45.  This road with the A46 provides an instant dual carriageway connection to the M6 (J2) 6 miles to the north, the M40 (J15) 12 miles to the south west and the M45 8 miles to the east.¨ ¨

It is made up of two separate plots. The southern 180 acres is capable of providing 3.6 million sq ft of large B2/B8 warehousing, whilst the 67 acre plot facing the A45 has the potential for a variety of B1a) b) and c) configurations, along with hotel and other ancillary uses.
