Stoford Gains Approval for Final Phase of Spa Park

Commercial People has learned that the commercial property developer Stoford has begun the construction of its final phase of development at Spa Park.

Located in Leamington Spa, the developer’s plans for a new job-creating production plant were approved, leading to an agreed pre-let with plastics manufacturing company Berry Global. The manufacturer is set to occupy a unit of 138,675 sq ft at the multi-million-pound business park.

The Leader of Warwick District Council, Cllr Andrew Day said: “We wholeheartedly welcome the expansion of the Spa Park and are very much behind Stoford’s plans to attract new sustainable businesses such as Berry, who will bring with them the opportunity to create new highly skilled jobs in our district and at the same time will make a valuable contribution to reducing our carbon footprint.”

Berry is a global leader in plastic and recycled packaging products, with more than 48,000 employees worldwide.

Their new plant in Spa Park will produce plastic products from household waste recycling collections. When fully operational, it will be capable of processing seven tonnes of material per hour and will operate a zero-waste policy.

Darryl Roadnight, Strategic Projects Director at Berry, said: “We are committed to developing products that help our customers meet and exceed their sustainability goals, as outlined in our Impact 2025 sustainability strategy. This new facility is the perfect demonstration of this, both in the material that it will produce and how it has been constructed and will operate. We are delighted to be part of the innovative and forward-looking Spa Park development.”

The pre-let to Berry is part of the final phase of development at Spa Park, which the Warwick District Council has approved. Stoford and BlackRock will speculatively develop four new units comprising a combined 151,650 sq ft of office, R&D, production and distribution accommodation.

Stoford has appointed Benniman Construction as the sites main contractor and is targeting a completion in July 2022.

Edward Peel, Development Manager at Stoford, concludes by stating: “We have received tremendous support from the local authority and are looking forward to progressing the final phase of development at Spa Park. Our pre-let with Berry is testament to the success of the overall scheme and we’re excited by the positive impact that this new development will have on the local economy, with new jobs and investment. We’re looking forward to welcoming new occupiers to the final phase of the park.”
