Publicly things have gone very quiet on the Magna Park front, though I am sure that there is a lot going on behind the scenes.
Currently the three planning applications stand like this:
Magna Park/DHL: 15/00919/FUL: Agreed on 13thJuly 2016
Gazeley are currently working to fulfil the conditions applied before starting building.
Symmetry Park: 15/00865/OUT: Agreed on 23rdNovember 2017.
This application was called in to the Secretary of State and is awaiting a decision about whether the SoS should reconsider the application.
Magna Park Hybrid: 15/01531/OUT: Rejected on 10thJanuary 2018.
Gazeley are currently considering whether to appeal and/or put in a new application.
HDC Local Plan
The HDC Local Plan 2011-2031 was submitted to the Secretary of State on 16thMarch 2018. An inspector has been allocated to examine the Local Plan and this process is expected to take place in September/October. You will remember that the Local Plan proposed that an additional 700,000 sq mts of warehousing could be built at Magna Park.
