East Midlands Gateway is a large-scale logistics park which will house up to 6 million square feet of warehouse premises covering around 700 acres. It will have its own rail terminal for the exclusive use of freight traffic with the aim of supporting and encouraging the increased movement of freight by rail in the East Midlands region.
In advance of occupation of warehouses or the operation of the rail terminal, extensive improvements will be undertaken to the road network in the immediate vicinity of the site. The site itself will be serviced, levelled and landscaped to accommodate built development.
The developed scheme is expected to generate in excess of 7,250 jobs.
