British Land Plans New Logistics Hub in Enfield

British Land Plans New Logistics Hub in Enfield
27 July 2023

British Land has received resolution to grant planning permission for a 455,000 sq ft multi-level logistics hub near Junction 25 of the M25.

Intended to cater for the growing demand for rapid distribution across Greater London, the warehouse space at Heritage House, Enfield comprises a 435,000 sq ft main building which will be split into two levels, allowing access to HGVs to both the ground and first floor service yards.

The plans include the potential for sub-division, to meet the requirements of a wide range of occupiers, ensuring the building can meet both current and future market demand. British Land is also providing 20,000 sq ft of space at the front of the site to cater to smaller occupiers.

The scheme will target a BREEAM Excellent rating, with an EPC A rating. All available roof space will be used for solar photovoltaics which, combined with air-source heat pumps, will offset 80 per cent of the site’s carbon emissions.

British Land currently has over 1 million sq ft of urban logistics schemes currently in planning, aiming to create London’s most environmentally sustainable and centrally located urban logistics portfolios.

The pipeline includes two sites off the Old Kent Road (Mandela Way and Verney Road), Finsbury Square Car Park, The Box at Paddington Central where planning consent was received earlier this year, and sites at Wembley and Thurrock.
