Two “high quality” net zero logistics units measuring 645,000sq ft are being built four miles away from the M2 in Sittingbourne.

Developer Panattoni said the 440,000sq ft and 205,000sq ft warehouses are expected to be completed in the first quarter of 2025 and will provide enhanced sustainability credentials.

It said Panattoni Park Sittingbourne is targeting net zero carbon development with an expected BREEAM sustainability rating of ‘Excellent’ and an EPC rating of ‘A’.

Both units will include the installation of roof-mounted photovoltaic panelling and electric vehicle charging points.

The site has 5MVa of power available, with a further 1.35MVa of power generated from the use of the solar panelling totalling 6.35MVa of power across the park.

The development provides access to national and international transport routes, with the port of Dover less than an hour away and easy connectivity to the M2, M20 and M25 motorways.
