Planning permission has been granted for the expansion of Salisbury Poultry’s processing plant in Bilston near Wolverhampton.
The business, which has a turnover of £115 million, got the go-ahead for its plans to enhance its processing plant with a three storey extension to provide additional production services, staff and office facilities; a one storey extension to provide new delivery bays and link section to main facility; recladding works; revised parking layout; and remodelling of the existing service yard.
Salisbury Poultry, which was established in 1989. said it had experienced rapid growth in customer demand and had now grown to the stage where it needed additional space to deal with the scale of operations and the expanding employee base of more than 600. “As such, the erection of extensions and associated works is necessary for the sustainable expansion of the business,” the business said in its planning application with Wolverhampton Council.
The proposed extensions, over all floors, total 3,725m². The existing service yard will be remodelled to facilitate the additional delivery bays. To comply with national and local planning policies regarding parking standards, the company have purchased small parcels of land in nearby locations within the Industrial Estate, with the intention for these to be utilised as car and lorry parking facilities, as part of this planning application
