Plans submitted for £27m, 105,000 sq ft urban logistics development on former Sony site near Horsham

Chancerygate has submitted plans to speculatively build 105,000 sq ft of Grade A urban logistics and industrial space in Southwater near Horsham, West Sussex.


The proposed scheme will comprise seven freehold units ranging from 8,325 sq ft to 33,940 sq ft. The projected gross development value is approximately £27m.


The 4.59 acre site, which was formerly a manufacturing and logistics hub for global electronic manufacturers, Sony, is located at Southwater Business Park approximately four miles south of Horsham. It is strategically positioned adjacent to the A24 between Crawley and Worthing, which provides access to the wider south coast.


All units at the planned scheme will benefit from cycle storage, electric vehicle charging points and solar cells which provide green energy on an affordable basis to occupiers.


In addition, the units will have enhanced roof lighting to increase levels of natural daylight to reduce the need for internal artificial lighting and will be constructed from high-performance building materials to reduce CO2 emissions. The scheme is targeting EPC B and a BREEAM Very Good rating as a minimum.
