Major expansion at Gloucestershire business park gets green light

Plans for a 50,000 sq ft expansion at Brockeridge Business Park close to the M50 / M5 intersection near Tewkesbury, have been approved after Tewkesbury Borough Council granted planning permission last week.

Local developer, Tiarks Developments will build on the success of the first two phases at Brockerige Park to develop the 46,876 sq ft phase three which will offer a mix of traditional office space, logistics and commercial units in a high-quality setting within the M5 growth corridor.

It will also provide the opportunity to create new jobs locally and give local businesses the opportunity for expansion while remaining within Tewkesbury and Gloucestershire.

Caspar Tiarks, director of Tiarks Developments, which has developed the first phases of Brockeridge Park and attracted a broad range of office occupiers, said the business park could attract new companies to the area and provide space for local businesses to relocate and grow.

“We are delighted with the decision and intend to work in partnership with the council, local people and businesses to ensure that Brockeridge Park continues to deliver long-lasting economic benefits for Tewkesbury and the surrounding area,” he said.

“We aim to deliver a high-quality, sustainable business park which is not only a great place to work, but also generates significant amounts of employment opportunities for business and the community and makes an important contribution to the local economy."

Conor Flanagan, director at Black Box Planning which is advising Tiarks Developments added, “Brockeridge Park with its focus on quality and sustainability has already attracted some high-quality occupiers from hi-tech aviation and defence businesses to software engineering, professional services and media businesses.

“With this consent for phase three, ambitious businesses will be able to capitalise of Brockeridge Park’s superb location on Junction 1 of the M50, just minutes from junction 8 of the M5 and the M5 growth corridor.”

The new buildings will continue with the high standards set in earlier phases, using high-quality materials set within well-managed, landscaped areas. Buildings will use eco-friendly materials and solar and photovoltaic panels will be an option on south facing rooves. Electric vehicle charging points have also recently been introduced.

The outline planning consent is for 46,876 sq ft of space and Tiarks Developments and its design team are keen to work with potential occupiers on bespoke design solutions to suit individual needs within an overall design guide for Brockeridge Park.
