Stoford Developments has submitted a planning application for a new 670,000 sq ft storage and distribution centre in Staffordshire for Pets At Home.



The proposed development of a 52-acre site at Stafford North Business Park, close to Jct 14 of the M6, will create a purpose-built warehouse unit, a three-storey office and two double-storey hub offices.

In July Pets at Home signed a 20-year conditional agreement for lease on the development, with construction set to start on site in 2021 pending planning consent by Stafford Borough Council.

Dan Gallagher, Joint Managing Director at Stoford Developments, said: “Our proposals for Stafford North Business Park have been submitted following an extensive online stakeholder and public consultation.

“We believe this development has the potential to become one of Staffordshire’s key employment sites and will make a valuable contribution in sustaining jobs in the region during a challenging period for the local and national economy.”
