Planning submitted for new 40m logistics hub Newarthill Motherwell Banner

3DReid submitted a planning application for the delivery of an exciting new c. £40 million logistics hub, on behalf of XPO Logistics, at Newarthill, Motherwell.

The development will serve to address a market-proven requirement for large-scale warehousing facilities in the region, as well as delivering biodiversity enhancement measures over the more than 40-acre site, which adjoins the company’s existing transport hub.

The global logistics provider is seeking to deliver a 300,000 square foot warehouse for storage and distribution, with associated offices. This c. £40 million facility will deliver significant economic benefits for the local area, including creating up to 473 direct new jobs, as well as those created through the construction process and in the wider economy as a result of the investment.

“The exciting development will provide significant benefits to the local community, with this investment of c. £40 million creating almost 500 net new jobs, delivering a 100 per cent carbon neutral facility and addressing increasing e-commerce demands.”

Additionally, the facility is aspiring to achieve net zero carbon for operational energy. This will be achieved through creative building design measures and the introduction of low and zero carbon technologies such as roof-mounted solar panels.

Critically, only around a third of the development site will be occupied by the warehousing facilities and associated built infrastructure, with the remaining portion reserved for biodiversity enhancement measures and improved public access.
