JPG have been working with Caddick Constructon and the design team to secure planning permission for two new warehouses in Knottingley, set to support up to 2,700 jobs.
The application site comprises approximately 74 acres of land located at Trinity Farm in Knottingley.
Full planning approval was granted by Wakefield Council for a distribution building with a maximum floor space of 1.37 million sq ft which is to be occupied by TK Maxx.
The facility will replace an existing depot in Wakefield where 461 employees work. Initially 600 staff will work at the new base when it opens in 2017, but this is expected to increase to 1,900 by 2023.
Outline permission, with all matters reserved, was also secured a second phase covering 592,000 sq ft. This is expected to support up to 800 jobs when constructed.
