We are in the final stages of achieving planning permission to build our new depot at the Ernesettle site in Plymouth which we acquired in early 2015. The planning consent has taken some time to obtain due to additional conditions required by the Ministry of Defence.
We expect to receive the final permission in the coming weeks and will then begin construction of the site, which will consist of a warehouse, office and fleet maintenance facilities.
Our Plymouth business has continued to expand and as a result the site at Lee Mill is not large enough to meet our future needs, therefore we plan to move our operation from the Lee Mill site to the new site once it is completed. Recent local news reports which suggested that the Group’s Head Office will also be moving to the new site once it is developed are incorrect.
Angela Butler, Deputy Managing Director said: “This investment in Ernesettle confirms our commitment to maintaining and developing a strong presence in the Plymouth area.”
