New business park to be built on 40 acres of land in Avonmouth

A large area of land in Avonmouth is going to be redeveloped into a multi-million pound business park.

Construction work has started on the first five buildings at the 40-acre site, which is located at Central Park on Western Approach.
The development is estimated to create around 700 new jobs in the area.

Developers Richardson Barberry, which acquired the land in 2017, are planning to build 11 buildings for storage, distribution and industrial use.

A number of well-known businesses including DHL, Amazon and Lidl, are already based at the 350-acre Central Park site.

Jonathan Robinson, Barberry development director, said: “There is significant pent-up demand in the region for mid-box units, which is why we are confident that speculative development is the right strategy for this site."

Highways England is currently building a new junction off the M49, which will provide direct access into Central Park.
 
Mark Watkins of Richardson, added: “We’re delighted to get to the point where construction of phase one of our Central Park development is underway.

"We are very much looking forward to delivering units of a size and quality that are in high demand in this region.”

Construction and facilities company VINCI Construction South West and Wales will be building the business park.

Central Park is one of the region’s largest logistics hubs, which borders the M49 in Avonmouth. It is a fully serviced site with planning consent ready for development.
