A planning application has been put forward by Big Yellow Self Storage at 361 Bath Road.
The planned building is a part two, part three and part six storey self-storage facility, together with vehicle access, service yard and parking.
The development will have the potential to provide around 8,380sqm of self-storage floorspace.
The plans include eight secured cycle parking spaces 14 car parking spaces, including two disabled bays and one parent/child parking bay.
If successful, the facility’s opening hours will be Monday to Sunday from 5am to 11pm.
The current business on the site is Northgate Vehicle Hire, which holds two leases that expire in June 2021 and July 2022.
Big Yellow has said that Northgate’s use of the site has reduced over the last year and employs only a few people – whereas the Big Yellow facility will support around 113 jobs.
The proposed development also includes ‘significant tree planting’ to this section of Bath Road, including street trees.
