Plans to build a new commercial unit on the site of a former fire-damaged industrial building in Coventry have been given the green light.

Work is set to begin on a new warehouse/trade counter property, in Herald Way, Binley, after planning permission was granted for the development.

The unit will be built on the site of a former industrial building which was damaged by fire in July last year and was then purchased by Purewal Commercial Estates Limited, with the assistance of Holt Commercial.

The new 8,600 sq ft building is expected to be completed this summer, and Holt Commercial, which is also marketing the site, has already received a number of enquiries about the property.

Jonathan Moore, director of Holt Commercial, said: “We are very pleased that planning permission has been granted for the development which will see the property rebuilt and brought back to employment use.

“There is a huge amount of demand for this type of industrial property in Coventry and we have already received a number of enquiries before work has even started.

“We look forward to seeing the project continue to progress as building work begins and will now be helping our client secure a tenant for the new building.”

Jat Purewal, from Purewal Commercial Estates Limited, added: “We are very excited to begin work on the new unit which will bring the site back into use.

“We now hope to attract a tenant which will create new employment opportunities for the local area and help grow the economy.”

The work will be carried out by Coventry based McCarthys.
