Giant Gets Planning Consent


VSL & Partners is delighted to announce that outline planning permission has been secured for a new industrial and warehouse development called Giant at Didcot Distribution Park.

The Giant scheme has consent for 944,209 sq ft of grade A warehouse and office accommodation set across 65 acres (26.3 hectares).  This includes outline planning permission for a single cross docked unit of 832,222 sq ft.

Planning permission for the Grade A warehousing and office space was granted to corporate pension fund clients of Savills Investment Management and Lingfield Securities. VSL & Partners has been appointed, jointly with Savills, to market the site to occupiers.

Andrew Parker, commercial property consultant at VSL & Partners says: “Adjacent to Milton Park business park, Giant is strategically located just minutes from the A34 Milton interchange, which in turn gives easy access to a wider motorway network and also provides access to industrial centres and the south coast ports.  

Consent for a single cross docked distribution warehouse of this size is unique for the A34 corridor and wider Thames Valley area and there is already strong interest with negotiations in hand with a number of prospective occupiers.  We are delighted to be instructed on a scheme of this significance.”
