Million sq ft dream for Lincolnshire

Evans Property Group has unveiled plans for a one million sq ft high bay distribution and warehousing facility in Lincoln.

Called Network 46, the 65-acre site is situated on the former RAF Swinderby base on the A46 between Lincoln and Newark-on-Trent and will be the largest distribution facility in Lincolnshire.

Phase one will consist of four units ranging from 10,000 sq ft to 100,000 sq ft and is scheduled for completion in Autumn 2007. One unit of 100,000 sq ft has already been let to Lincoln-based Danwood, an independent supplier of Total Office Solutions in the UK and Ireland.

Danwood’s warehouse facility will include 21,000 sq ft of offices on three storeys and 122 car parking spaces on a 6.99-acre site.

Daniel Brumfitt, development surveyor at Evans Property Group said: “There is a shortage of distribution facilities in Lincolnshire and the fact Danwood agreed to let 100,000 sq ft as soon as we received planning permission demonstrates the interest we have received.”
