November 14th, 2023
Glencar has today announced that it has been appointed by new customer Verdant Regeneration to design and build a new 20,400 sq ft regional hub for DX (Group) plc, a leading provider of delivery solutions including parcel freight, secure courier, 2-Man and logistics services, at a new 200 acre-development site in Ilkeston, Derbyshire.
The DX regional hub project which will also include construction of offices and external works will be built to an exceptionally high standard with a raised dock and onsite car parking. The new hub and depot will provide significant additional regional capacity, improve efficiency by reducing stem mileage, delivering environmental and customer service benefits. Construction is due to start on site during October 2023 with the building expected to take 24 weeks to build, PC by early April 2024.
To celebrate the announcement and to mark the start of works onsite a ground breaking event was recently held attended by executives from DX, Glencar, officials from Erewash Borough Council, Mayor Councillor Frank Phillips, Leader of the Council Councillor James Dawson and local MP Maggie Throup.
The development being formally marketed as New Stanton Park has outline planning permission for the construction of 2.6m sq ft of industrial/warehouse units from 11,000 sq ft upto 1,068,00 sq ft in a single building with the potential to deliver upto 4,000 new jobs once fully developed. The site has power connection of 31mva and can accommodate a high volume water connection.
Speaking about the project Pete Goodman, Managing Director – UK Midlands, North and Ireland said: “We are very happy to have been appointed by new customer Verdant Regeneration on what will be the first development to come out of the ground at this brand new strategically located development site which has been a long time in the planning.
This development has been designed with sustainability at the core which when combined with large amounts of amenity and green space at New Stanton Park will see fishing ponds, rural walkways and cycle tracks all enhanced to link the site and wider communities.
Glencar are fully committed to sustainable construction and a sustainable future. Our ESG approach has been deliberately designed to help us to create a positive impact on the world in which we operate as well as a more innovative, resilient and successful business for the future. We are committed to being a responsible business and to supporting customers in achieving their own sustainability targets and look forward to working closely with Verdant Regeneration and the broader project team.
Also in comment, David Grier of Verdant Regeneration said “Having acquired the site in 2020, we have worked hard across the team to quickly bring forward an outline planning application for a development of 2.6m sq ft on what is one of the largest regeneration projects within the region. We are delighted to have now successfully secured outline planning consent and thank Erewash Borough Council for the professional manner and efficiency in which they have dealt with the planning application.
New Stanton Park offers an excellent strategic location, blending an active rail connection with strong private and public transport connectivity, plentiful labour, large power supply and high volume water connection. When combined, we are confident this will result in a highly successful development with the next chapter set to positively transform and improve the area, bringing forward large scale job creation in the process.
Also commenting, Paul Ibbetson, Chief Executive Officer DX (Group) plc, said “DX is delighted to be announced as the first business taking space on New Stanton Park Industrial Estate, a redevelopment scheme near Nottingham. The purchase of this 25,000 sq ft site will enable us to create a major new regional hub and depot to service our Group’s parcel freight activities.
The new hub and depot will provide significant additional regional capacity, improve efficiency by reducing stem mileage and is in line with our plans to make strategic property investments. We also look forward to creating further job opportunities in the area. Construction, which will benefit from a raised dock and mechanisation, is expected to be completed during Q2 2024.”
