The site offers the opportunity to accommodate high quality bespoke design and build led development for office, hi-tech and industrial uses.
The master plan is currently being finalised for one of the South West’s largest employment developments. This proposal, known as Langage Energy Park, has been designed to accommodate Plymouth fringe area employment growth for at least the next 20 years.
Occupiers will be able to acquire their buildings on a leasehold ‘to let’, or freehold ‘for sale’ basis. Requirements for office buildings can be designed sole occupancy, or by way of shared occupation on an individual floor basis. Industrial buildings are being designed for sole occupancy or unit sub division as required.
It is the intention that the buildings will be designed to BREEAM standards, and able to allow occupants to benefit from discounted rates of energy supply from the adjacent power station.
The catalyst for further growth, Centrica’s gas fired Energy Centre power station, is nearing completion. Developer Langage Energy Park Ltd (LEPL) with support from its partners, the South West Regional Development Agency (SWRDA), South Hams District Council and Plymouth City Council, is delivering further employment development in the vicinity of the Energy Centre, which will include offices, industrial, storage, distribution and ancillary amenity uses.
Leading South West property consultant, Vickery Holman, has been involved from the outset providing feasibility and marketing advice to LEPL.
Mark Potter from Vickery Holman says: ‘The development is of major importance, not just to Plymouth but the South West peninsula as a whole, particularly in these challenging economic times. Together with the proposed development of the Sherford new town, Langage Energy Centre will supply valuable infrastructure in terms of jobs, homes and transport to support future growth in the Plymouth Eastern Corridor.
Plots for the first phase buildings are now available to provide occupiers with bespoke accommodation on a pre-let or pre-sale basis at the entrance to the Park.
LEPL Project Director, David Bee says: ‘From the outset we have been committed to delivering a development of a very high standard. First phase plots are approved and available for development. Now with SWRDA’s support we are excited to be taking the first steps on delivering our wider proposals, with a completed comprehensive master plan and a strategic planning application due in Spring 2010. LEPL is progressing several discussions with interested businesses to provide and occupy new premises, reflecting confidence and optimism in the future of the South West economy.‘ Indicative masterplan
