A planning application for a new 670,000 sq.ft. national storage and distribution centre has been lodged on behalf of Pets at Home by Stoford Developments. The proposed development is of a 52 acre site at Stafford North Business Park and will comprise a purpose-built warehouse unit, a three-storey office and two further double-storey hub offices. Construction is set to get underway in 2021 if the application, which includes a new roundabout and access road, is approved.
The retailer has signed a 20 year conditional agreement for the lease on the development which also has the option of a further 100,000 sq.ft. of expansion land.
