IAMP development partner moves forward with IAMP ONE planning submission
Henry Boot Developments (HBD) has submitted a planning application for IAMP ONE at the International Advanced Manufacturing Park, known as IAMP, in Sunderland.
Subject to the planning process construction could commence during the second half of 2018.
IAMP is being delivered in a joint venture between Sunderland City Council and South Tyneside Council, with HBD appointed as delivery partner.
HBD is part of one of the country’s most well-established property groups, Henry Boot PLC, and benefits from a wealth of experience in delivering schemes of such size and significance throughout the UK.
Located next to the UK’s largest car manufacturing plant, Nissan, and designated nationally significant by the Secretary of State, IAMP will provide a bespoke, world- class environment for the automotive supply chain and related advanced manufacturers, with 4,200,000 sq ft of floor space.
Expected to create more than 5,000 new jobs, the 370-acre scheme will boost Nissan’s supply chain, while bringing in more than £400m of private sector investment over the next decade.
The first phase, IAMP ONE, covers 150 acres and will deliver 1,687,000 sq ft of industrial space.
Vivienne Clements, Director at HBD, said: “IAMP is a hugely important site for the North East, and indeed the UK’s wider automotive and advanced manufacturing economy. We are focused on the delivery of IAMP and are working closely with both Sunderland City Council and South Tyneside Council to bring the scheme forward, aiming to be on site during the second half of 2018.”
She continued: “Early conversations have been incredibly positive with regard to take-up and relocation to the IAMP site – potential occupiers have been identified and, with discussions continuing, we would like to hear from all interested parties.”
