A 105,699 sq ft industrial and distribution space at Coventry’s Lyons Park has been given approval.
Goodman’s Lyons 106 facility will offer customers high-quality warehouse space in a strategic Midlands location, placing 75 per cent of England’s population within a two-hour drive time. Also included as part of the planning approval is a new lorry park with 173 spaces.
Customers will join a diverse mix of local, regional and national companies at the Park.
Lyons 106 will create new employment space for circa 200 new jobs and boosting the area’s economic recovery post-COVID.
Planning for Lyons 106 builds on Goodman’s success at Lyons Park, having already delivered 800,000 sq ft of industrial and logistics space, including a 464,000 sq ft distribution facility for Amazon and a 135,000 sq ft space to Jaguar Land Rover.
Nigel Dolan, Development Director at Goodman UK, said: “Goodman’s investment in Lyons Park aligns with our global strategy to provide retail, e-commerce and third-party logistics customers with easy access to consumers, allowing them to service areas with the highest levels of delivery demand.
“Coventry is a rich industrial and distribution destination with numerous benefits beyond its connectivity, such as a vibrant employment market.”
Lyons 106 will offer customers flexibility and operational efficiency, with features including a 12.5m clear internal height, 50m yard depth, 10 dock-level loading doors and 29 HGV spaces.
