Proposed mixed use scheme at the Fuel and Distribution Depot, Bognor Road, Chichester
Hunter Page Planning has submitted a planning application on behalf of Hanbury Properties for the redevelopment of the Fuel and Distribution Depot, Bognor Road, Chichester to create a new mixed use employment site.
The primary uses that will anchor the development will be a range of new employment units to accommodate light manufacturing and distribution uses within the City. In conjunction with these will be a further range of units that will also accommodate trade counter uses. To the rear of the site, there will also be a waste recycling facility, in line with the allocation within the Waste Local Plan. In addition to this, the development will also provide a small food retail unit next to some roadside convenience uses that will provide refreshments to road users as they come in and out of the City.
The combined development will create 260 new jobs for Chichester. In addition, 99 jobs per year will be created during the construction phase.
