Urban design consultancy Turley Associates has submitted a suite of ten planning applications for a 79,000m business park at Adanac Park, Southampton, UK.

Urban design consultancy Turley Associates has submitted a suite of ten planning applications for a 79,000m² business park at Adanac Park, Southampton, UK.

The company has submitted major planning applications for office, logistics, industrial, residential and leisure floor space on land owned by the Trustees of the Barker Mill Estates (TBME) in Southampton.

Adanac Park is situated on farmland on the edge of Southampton and sits at the gateway into the city and the docks.

The site currently houses the headquarters building for Ordnance Survey, which was opened in 2011.

Turley said the site, which is adjacent to the Lidl UK GmbH distribution centre, is spread across the administrative areas of Test Valley borough council and Southampton city council.

The consultancy’s applications are for several areas of land within Adanac Park and comprise two applications for storage and distribution space of 4,100m² and 27,600m² each, and four separate areas to develop into office spaces at 10,840m², 2,953m², 20,583m² and 12,941m², and the conversion of a farmhouse from residential to office space.

Turley Associates’ scheme also includes an 80-bedroom care home and 26 residential units, the redevelopment of farmstead area, a new restaurant, access roads, footpaths, cycleways and landscaping.

Turley Associates Southampton office director Stuart Irvine said the scheme takes advantage of the sites’ strategic location to support office and logistics uses, particularly in terms of its relationship with key locational drivers, such as the docks and motorway.

"Adanac Park represents the most exciting opportunity to deliver commercial development in South Hampshire in over a decade," Irvine said.

Test Valley borough council and Southampton city council will now review the scheme and a decision is expected in May this year.
