There's more to come at DVP following yesterday's announcement that an eye-watering £50m will be invested in a new bottling and distribution plant for Lidl.
The deal is wonderful news and a huge boost not only for Dove Valley Park but for the economy of South Derbyshire and the region as a whole. SDDC and Clowes have an exceptional working relationship where DVP is concerned and this deal is just reward for the collaborative efforts of all concerned.
The addition of the 500,000sqft facility re-enforces the park's appeal to both manufacturing and distribution companies and there is no doubt in my mind that DVP's location is a critical factor. Not only is it at the centre of the UK with exceptional distribution reach but it also benefits from an excellent labour supply within an easily commutable distance.
And more activity expected at DVP soon. A planning application for a new unit of 190,000sqft is currently being considered by SDDC with a decision expected within the next few weeks. All being well, Clowes should be in a position to have the building ready for an occupier by the end of this year.
