Arla distribution centre gets planning

Welwyn, Hertfordshire, UK:  Arla Foods has planning permission for a 21,000sq metre distribution centre at Hatfield. Welwyn Hatfield council approved the development on the 17-acre plot on Hatfield Business Park.

The distribution centre will be operated by Hoddesdon-based chilled food distribution firm PCL Transport on behalf of Arla Foods, a dairy co-operative.

Construction is to start this summer and the site is expected to be operational by mid-2013. Arlington Business Parks, a division of Australian property comoany Goodman, will develop the centre for Arla. Goodman has a 15-year lease with PCL Transport.

The site is close to the A1M at junction 4 to the north and 3 to the south. Both junctions can be accessed via the A1001 Comet Way.

The warehouse will have 70 loading docks and 10 level access bays on two sides, a 1,300sq metre office block, and an HGV servicing and wash facility.

The warehouse will be 15m high to the underside of internal haunch, with a further 3.5m to the ridge.

Tenants at the 400-acre park include Ocado, Booker and Royal Mail.
