In March 2019 outline planning permission was obtained on behalf of the City of Wolverhampton Council and Staffordshire County Council for a 29 hectare extension to the successful i54 strategic employment site. The permission allows up to 100,000m2 of B2 and B2 employment development and is aimed at major occupiers. We are currently submitting applications to discharge planning conditions to allow the first phase of site preparation works to get underway.

On behalf of Crag Hill Estates Ltd and Praxis Real Estate Management, in March 2018 ANCER SPA obtained reserved matters approval to first phase site enabling works at the Airfields strategic site at Deeside.

Scartho Top Strategic Housing Site
On behalf of the Brocklesby Estate and Cyden Homes Ltd, in November 2017 ANCER SPA obtained reserved matters approval from North East Lincolnshire Council for 845 houses at Scartho Top, Grimsby.

Another Development at the i54 Business Park
In February 2017, on behalf of A&J Mucklow Investments Ltd, ANCER SPA obtained reserved matters approval from South Staffordshire Council for a 4,700m2 industrial building for Tentec Ltd. This was the latest in a number of developments on the i54 strategic employment site where ANCER SPA has been involved for over ten years in obtaining outline and planning permission, detailed planning permissions and reserved matters submissions. This has included Jaguar Land Rover’s Engine Manufacturing Centre. We are currently working as part of a project team on formulation of an outline planning application for a 25ha extension to the i54 site.

In September 2014 Poundland occupied their new 35,000m2 regional distribution centre in Harlow. We obtained planning permission for this scheme on behalf of the joint venture developers Lynton Developments and Maclaren Construction. Following the grant of planning permission we were engaged in an intensive period of discharge of pre-commencement and pre-occupation planning conditions which were all successfully resolved prior to occupation.
