Mixed Use Business Park
Cathedral Park is set over 17 acres on the South East edge of Wells and in close proximity to the city centre. With Outline Planning consent already in place, the Masterplan for Cathedral Park provides a mix of office, warehousing and trade counter space totaling in excess of 200,000sqft (21,832sqm) with associated car parking facilities.
The proposed scheme for Plot 7, located towards the southeast corner of the overall site, seeks to create 22 light industrial units, each ranging from 47sqm to 186sqm which equates to a total of 2,419sqm for this plot. 62 car parking bays will also be provided outside each unit for convenient staff and visitor access.
The buildings have been designed to be flexible enough to cope with a variety of tenants / owners as either light industrial units or trade counters with their own distinct entrance and signage area. Each unit can accommodate an internal mezzanine to allow future occupiers the flexibility to configure the space according to their requirements.
PV panels can be fitted on the South facing roofs to generate renewable energy. The design maximises the amount of natural light entering each unit and the proposed materials are sustainable and low energy.
The proposed planting will minimise the visual impact of the new buildings whilst also promoting local bio-diversity.
