Hawkesmill Nurseries gains permission for new developments

Published: 17 December 2010
Nursery business secures planning permission for expansion plans at its sites in West Midlands Green Belt with the help of Malcolm Scott Consultants.
The most recent permission obtained is the second phase of development at Hawkesmill's Fen End Road site near Solihull. The first phase saw Malcolm Scott gain consent for a nursery at the site, which comprised 2,400 sq m of production polytunnels, a plant standing out area and staff portable cabin, on a green field.

The second phase will see the construction of 4,890 sq m of horticultural glasshouses and two irrigation tanks - extending the area of the nursery onto green field land to the southwest.

Meanwhile, at Hawkesmill Nurseries' main Honily Road site, work is now underway on a new despatch building which will be operational by spring 2011 season. Planning permission for the development, which was secured last month, includes a 750 sq m plant despatch barn and also allows the relocation and extension of 1,244 sq m of polytunnels and improvements to the highway access.

Hawkesmill Nurseries' Richard Evans said: "We are delighted that we now have permission for phase two of the Fen End site and our main despatch building. This will allow us to increase production at our Nurseries to meet increased demand. Using Malcolm Scott Consultants to handle the planning on our behalf has allowed us to concentrate on what we do best - growing plants."
