Commercial People understands that Wychavon District Council’s planning committee yesterday approved the application for a large extension to the Worcester Six Business Park in Worcestershire.
Developed by commercial property firm Stoford, the plans will allow the developer to provide up to a further 680,000 sq ft of floor space on 61.18 acres of land.
As previously covered on Commercial People, an extension has always been part of the Worcester Six Business Park plans, and it was included in the South Worcestershire Development Plan, which was adopted in 2016 by councils in south Worcestershire.
Commenting on the extensions approval, Gerard Ludlow, Director at Stoford, said: “This is an important step forward for the growth of Worcester Six and it comes at a time when we are in a strong position to put forward our long-term plans to add carefully designed units that are in keeping with the location. We are looking forward to making a start so that we can attract even more national and international companies to Worcester, bringing much-needed jobs to the area.”
Worcester Six Business Park is a few minutes drive from junction six of the M5 and home to a number of major national and international companies.
