Symmetry Park, Kettering Gets The Green Light

Tritax Symmetry has gained outline planning permission for a major new logistics scheme at Symmetry Park, Kettering.

Planning has been granted for up to 2.31million sq ft of high-quality logistics floorspace, which has the potential to create up to 2,800 jobs and will be a major contributor towards Kettering’s planned economic growth.

The scheme will also deliver the first phase of the Isham by Pass which will see the dualling of the A509 from Junction 9 of the A14 to the site entrance.  Located directly alongside the A14 “Trans-European” freight route, Symmetry Park, Kettering, extends to a total of 136 acres.

Speaking about the decision, Jonathan Wallis, development director, commented: “We are extremely pleased with the decision – this is one of the few sites in the East Midlands that can accommodate a single unit in excess of one million sq ft.  Our focus is now on getting on site to start delivering buildings. Work has already started on a planning application for the associated infrastructure and first phase of development and we will continue to engage with the local community as our proposals progress.”
