Planning permission granted for Ashford site
Gallagher Properties purchased 2 sites in Carlton Road last Autumn. The sites are well located, being 1 mile from junction 9 of the M20 motorway.
The sites are on Cobbs Wood Industrial Estate, a well-established employment location a short distance from Ashford town centre.
The main site is 5 acres for which planning permission has now been granted. There are 3 elements to the permission,
- A new grounds maintenance depot for Ashford Borough Council
- A new ready mix concrete plant for Gallagher Aggregates. This includes facilities for bagged aggregate sales and a transfer station for demolition material for processing back at Gallagher’s quarry in Maidstone, and
- 70,000 sq ft of warehouses & workshops
Gallagher has been carrying out enabling work over recent weeks. Construction of the council depot will be complete in September, followed by the ready mix concrete plant early in 2017.
The industrial units are subject to final design following a review of the market to ensure we deliver product that meets market demand, and will be built out in 2017 / 2018.
