New units at industrial estate given the go-ahead

Two new industrial units are set to be built at the Eastington Industrial Estate, near Stroud.

The site is situated not far from the Bond's Mill Estate at Stonehouse and close to the site of the proposed new Forest Green Rovers football ground and eco-park.

Zesta Planning Ltd have confirmed that they have secured permission for the two industrial units on behalf of private clients.

Working closely with Rappor, Zesta prepared an appropriate solution to expand this key employment site, which was subject to drainage and heritage constraints.

The expansion of this business park will comprise of c. 7,000 sq ft of additional industrial floorspace with a mix of research and development, industrial processes and general industrial.

The firm says it is a highly sustainable location for industrial and employment generating uses, with direct access onto M5 Junction 13 to the north-west. It will also provide an array of additional job opportunities for the local area.

James Griffin, from Zesta Planning, said: "The site itself already has a number of buildings on it. We worked very closely with Rappor and it resulted in permission. It was relatively straightforward.

"I don't know who the occupiers will be - we were working for the estate's owners."
