Planning Permission granted for new regional headquarters on major Midlands employment site

DLA is delighted to have secured planning permission from Rugby Borough Council, on behalf of Manse Opus (Ansty) LLP, for a new regional headquarters for gas giant Cadent at Ansty Park, providing nearly 9,000 sqm (GIA) of prime office space together with multi-storey car parking and a comprehensive landscape scheme.

This follows confirmation from the Secretary of State that he would not call the application in for his determination on this important employment site within the Green Belt, and agreement from RBC that ‘very special circumstances’ existed for the development to proceed. This represents a success for the multi-disciplinary team that worked tirelessly during lockdown to ensure planning permission could be granted without delay.

Development of the facility has already begun following the discharge of pre-commencement conditions.
