A scoping opinion request has revealed plans for five buildings totalling 105,000 sq m of industrial and warehouse space in North Warnborough in Hampshire.

Obsidian Strategic has applied to Hart District and Basingstoke & Deane Borough councils to find out if an environmental impact assessment is needed for its plans to develop land at Lodge Farm near Hook.

The 32-hectare irregularly-shaped site is made up of four fields of arable farmland close to J5 of the M3. Buildings in the scheme are expected to range in size between 8,170 sq m and 34,326 sq m, with potential for some incubator space for local businesses.

An electric vehicle charging station is envisaged with capacity for around 200 vehicles.

Subject to planning, construction is expected to start in Q3, 2023 and take 15 months.

The team on the project includes Quod as planning consultant, EIA co-ordinators and on socio-economics, UMC Architects, Glanville on transport and access, water, flood risk and drainage and Savills on archaeology and built heritage.
