A public exhibition will be held in Kislingbury today (Saturday) to showcase plans to expand Pineham Business Park in Northampton.

Plans for significant investment into Pineham Business Park in Northampton are being prepared offering the potential for 1,300 new jobs in the town.

The site, on the outskirts of town near the M1 junction 15A, is home to a variety of international, national and local companies including Sainsbury’s, BMW, Dalepak Frem UK and Freeman Automotive and currently employs nearly 2,000 people.

Now plans are being drawn up to deliver further expansion which would see high-specification new buildings established on land to the west of the existing site.

Prologis, which owns and manages the Park, is currently preparing a planning application which it intends to submit to South Northamptonshire Council later this summer.

Prologis is holding a public consultation on the proposals and people are being invited to attend a public exhibition of the plans at Kislingbury Village Hall today (Saturday) between 11am and 4pm.

Prologis is looking for feedback and ideas on the proposals so that the draft plans can be refined ahead of formal submission of a planning application later this summer.

James Wright, vice president – market officer at Prologis, said: “Pineham Business Park has gone from strength to strength since it opened less than a decade ago. Now, there is an opportunity to create a further 1,300 new jobs and channel fresh investment into the Park in a way which promises to support the local economy and strengthen this part of Northamptonshire as a base for business.

“We would welcome feedback on our emerging proposals and hope that people will engage with this opportunity and come along to the public exhibition to find out more.”

The public exhibition is taking place at:

Saturday July 12, 11am until 4pm

Kislingbury Village Hall, Ashby Court (off Bugbrooke Road), Kislingbury

The exhibition will include a series of plans and information on the draft proposals and the Prologis development team will be there to discuss them and answer any questions. Feedback forms will be available so that people can provide their comments, ideas and views.

The consultation will run until Friday July 25,
