Barberry Industrial reveals £28m development plans for logistics units in Wolverhampton

Barberry Industrial has announced a £28m project to develop three mid-box manufacturing/logistics units in a West Midlands business park.

The company’s proposed units would measure 47,750 sq ft, 62,000 sq ft, and 113,000 sq ft, and would be located at Hilton Cross Business Park near Wolverhampton.

They would be built to exacting energy efficiency and sustainability levels, and would include photovoltaic cells on the south facing slopes of the roof and provisions for electric charging points.

Barberry was selected by landowner South Staffordshire Council as the preferred purchaser of the last two remaining plots on the business park.

The property investor and developer has submitted a detailed planning application to the council.

Jon Robinson, development director and shareholder at Barberry Industrial (pictured above), said: “We have an excellent working relationship with the council, and we are looking forward to working with them to deliver this prime motorway-connected manufacturing/logistics scheme of more than 227,750 sq ft of self-contained, high quality accommodation to help satisfy demand in the mid-box sector.
“We are confident that the quality of our development, combined with this excellent location, will generate a great deal of interest from potential occupiers, catering for pent-up demand for both freehold and leasehold requirements, and provide a logistics location for occupiers supplying into I54 on Junction 2 of the M54. 

“We are also confident that this development will attract high quality occupiers, creating much-needed jobs, and attracting further investment to the region.”

Grant Mitchell, assistant director for enterprise and growth at South Staffordshire Council, commented: “The council has worked positively with Barberry for some time to realise the potential of the two plots on Hilton Cross, and it’s good to see such well-located, quality employment land coming forward for development. 

“The proposals will create much-needed jobs in difficult times and demonstrates the attractiveness of South Staffordshire that Barberry are keen to invest here and add to their already impressive portfolio.”
