Evander urban logistics scheme for Southampton

Evander Properties has received detailed planning consent for an urban logistics scheme at Test Lane, Nursling, Southampton.

The scheme will comprise three logistics units of 40,000 sq ft, 50,000 sq ft and 116,000 sq ft.

The site, on junction 1 of the M271, provides immediate access onto the southern motorway network, Southampton Docks and City Centre.

Evander director Neil Dickinson said: “Opportunities to develop new distribution accommodation in Southampton are extremely rare. We have worked tirelessly with the planning officers and the local community to strike the right balance between sustainable development that is 100 per cent relevant to Southampton’s economy and the requirements of the local stakeholders. We are fielding a number of existing enquiries and look forward to starting on site as soon as possible”

And Jerry Vigus, director at Lambert Smith Hampton, added: “With the shortage of available industrial and warehouse units in Southampton this is exactly the good news the commercial property market needed.”
