Planning permission granted for new industrial park

Trinity ParkPlanning permission has been granted for a new industrial park to the northwest of Swindon.

Swindon Borough Council gave the green light to joint applicants Trebor Developments and Hillwood to erect 78,750 sq ft of warehouse and production units on a five-acre site at Hillmead.

Construction of Trinity Park – which could include either one or two units – will start shortly, with the first units ready to occupy by autumn.

The site is close to Junction 16 of the M4. The M5 is also within easy reach via the A4198 and A419.

The developers say the park would suit manufacturing, distribution occupiers, or would potentially be suitable as a headquarters facility.

CBRE and WBM Property will market the new units.

James Drew of Trebor Developments said: “A well-established industrial and distribution location, Hillmead is ideal for a development like this.

"The units will be thoughtfully designed and set within a landscaped environment, with ample parking for lorries and cars, and we are already having positive discussions with occupiers.”
