Planners have given the go-ahead for a new distribution centre in the East Midlands.

North West Leicestershire District Council’s planning committee granted permission for the creation of a 2.94 million sq ft site near junction 11 of the M42 near Appleby Magna.

It will include five new units and is expected create new jobs and boost the local economy.

The landowner IM Properties recently revealed their intention to lease the site to Jaguar Land Rover for use as a ‘logistics campus’.

Statutory consultees including Highways England, Leicestershire, Warwickshire, Staffordshire and Derbyshire County Council’s highways departments and the Environment Agency raised no objections to the plan.

Committee chair, Cllr Nigel Smith, said: 'This has been an emotive and challenging planning application which has sparked lots of passion and interest in the community.

'As a committee we must assess all applications against material planning considerations, planning legislation and guidance and our own Local Plan.

'This development fits within these considerations and promises to be a significant boost for the local economy and levels of employment.

'Our planning officers will now continue to work with the developers and the local community as this plan moves forward to the construction phase.'
