Planning success in Basingstoke

July 2023

Marchmont Investment Management, in JV with Pictet Group, has secured planning permission from Basingstoke & Dean Council for 82,450 sq ft of industrial floorspace at Intec Business Park in Basingstoke.

Intec Business Park is situated on Wade Road on the Daneshill Industrial Estate, occupying a strategic location only 1 mile from the A33 and 2 miles from junction 5 of the M3. Intec Business Park is already a popular scheme for both SMEs and national corporates.

The scheme comprises three self-contained units, ranging from 22,400 sq ft to 35,850 sq ft, and will provide best-in-class industrial floorspace for occupiers. The scheme will benefit from 8m clear internal eaves heights, dedicated yards of up to 22m depth, 3 – 4 level loading doors per unit, 10% roof lights, 30% Solar PV and 250 KVA of power per unit.

In line with Marchmont’s sustainability priorities, the scheme focuses on all categories of ESG. Scheme initiatives include renewable energy in the form of PVs and EV charging, extensive landscaping and cycling and shower facilities to encourage employee wellbeing, as well as sustainability certification via target BREEAM Excellent and EPC A. The focus on ESG will ensure the scheme provides a high quality, high specification build that is energy efficient, minimises impact on the immediate environment, and provides a safe and pleasant workplace for employees to work

Julian Perry, Head of Asset Management at Marchmont, “We are delighted to secure planning permission at Intec Business Park. We look forward to delivering a high-quality, sustainable development into the currently constrained Basingstoke industrial market.

The units are expected to be available for occupation by the end of 2024.
