Stroud industrial estate to be redeveloped

Planning has been approved to demolish and transform a dilapidated trading estate off Bath Road in Stroud.

The purpose-built development will see the brownfield site turned into eight separate units totalling 33,077 sq feet.

Sitting next to the grade two listed Lightpill Mill, the new development will follow a similar shape to the existing building (Unit L) but be narrower, allowing for each unit to have its own parking area and HGV bay.

The scheme is part of a wider improvement plan for the estate, which will see vacant and dated building be replaced with new, modern commercial units.

The application emphasised that the proposed scheme will significantly enhance the setting of the listed building due to the simplified appearance of the units and reduction in the heights of the buildings.

The application also said: "The proposal will significantly enhance the employment offer of the site attracting future investment and businesses to the site with the provision of modern commercial buildings".

German discount supermarket chain, Aldi, sits in front of the site facing Bath Road. Engineering company SMP Sheet Metal moved from the site to make way for the construction of the food store in 2018.
