450,000sq ft warehouse development in Dartford underway

A 114-acre M25 site at Dartford is to see a 450,000sq ft warehouse development as the first phase gets underway.

Tritax Big Box has secured planning permission for a 28-acre slice of the site  at Littlebrook, Dartford, within the M25, which was acquired in July 2017.

Tritax says that the marketing campaign, which formally commenced recently, has already attracted a healthy level of enquiries and the Phase 1 planning consent is expected to heighten interest further.

The Littlebrook site represents one of London’s largest big box logistics parks and is in a core South East “Last Mile” location on the edge of London and inside the M25 orbital motorway. It has excellent road and port connectivity and can support the potential development of approximately 1.7 million sq ft of logistics distribution buildings.

Discussions are now in progress with Dartford Borough Council for a separate application for outline planning consent on the balance of the site.

Tritax are working with partners Baricote Properties.
