Plans have been lodged to build a huge new Pets at Home distribution centre in Stafford.

Birmingham-based Stoford Developments has submitted a planning application for a new 670,000 sq ft national storage and distribution centre on behalf of the leading pet care business.

The proposed development – at a 52-acre site at Stafford North Business Park – will see the construction of a purpose-built warehouse unit, a three-storey office and two double-storey hub offices.

Plans also include a new roundabout on the A34 Stone Road and a development access road serving the new unit. An additional 100,000 sq ft of expansion land will also be available, if required.

Pets at Home has signed a 20-year conditional agreement for lease on the development, with construction set to start on site in 2021 pending planning consent by Stafford Borough Council.

Stoford joint managing director, Dan Gallagher, said: “This development represents a fantastic opportunity to give Pets at Home a modern, purpose-built facility in a superb central location.

“Our proposals for Stafford North Business Park have been submitted following an extensive online stakeholder and public consultation.

“We believe this development has the potential to become one of Staffordshire’s key employment sites and will make a valuable contribution in sustaining jobs in the region during a challenging period for the local and national economy.”
