The practice has secured over 40,000 sq.m of storage and distribution warehousing at the Appletree Trading Estate, Northamptonshire. The site, owned by UBS, is a former airfield and has been used for many years for informal commercial uses. However, planning permission had never been clarified for the majority of the site.

Following extensive pre-application discussions with the South Northamptonshire DC a series of Certificates of Lawful Development were submitted for existing buildings and open storage areas on site. The subsequent granting of these certificates will help ensure the successful future of the site, enabling UBS to attract a wide range of high profile operators to the area and create much needed employment opportunities.
