Yearsley has set out plans to build a 385,000 sq ft cold store at Gateway Peterborough as part of its national expansion programme.
A three-week public consultation will take place to hear residents’ views on the proposals, ahead of submitting an application for planning permission later this summer. Yearsley hopes that the site will be operational by the end of 2013.
The clad-rack cold store will consist of two buildings of similar design and in total provide 385,000 sq ft of space, including 10,000 sq ft of office space. The highest parts of the buildings will be 35 metres with other parts of the facility at 23 metres.
Gateway Peterborough, also known as the Great Haddon Employment Zone, has planning permission for more than 5 million sq ft of employment space. Yearsley expects to create about 300 jobs at the site.
