Logistics real estate developer Panattoni has secured planning consent for a 200,000sq ft speculative logistics development in Crawley.

Panattoni is expected to start construction at the end of September 2023 and the speculative development is expected to reach practical completion in the fourth quarter of 2024.

The development is made up of two facilities of 134,012sq ft and 65,660sq ft respectively, on a 10-acre brownfield site on Fleming Way in the established industrial area of Manor Royal Business District, close to Gatwick Airport and junction 10 of the M23.

The facilities will be built to a BREEAM sustainability rating of 'Excellent’ and an EPC rating of A, with a range of sustainability features, including electric vehicle charging points and 15% roof lights, incorporated into the development.

Panattoni Park Crawley will be the third development start for Panattoni this year south of London, joining a 452,469sq ft last-mile logistics development at Burgess Hill and a 268,063sq ft development in Brighton.

David McGougan, Panattoni development director, said: “Panattoni hopes to commence construction in the fourth quarter of 2023 and this will be the third site development we have commenced south of London within the last three months, reflecting our confidence in and the strength of the south coast’s logistics market.

“This location within the Manor Royal Business Park offers tenants an excellent place to service London and south east markets”.
