Prospero, Ansty Obtains Planning Consent for £130m Meggitt Building

Manse Opus have achieved planning consent for one of the largest Midlands industrial lettings in over a decade.  Planning consent has been granted to the joint venture between Opus Land and Manse LLP to build a 440,000sqft building for Meggitt Plc.  This will be the first unit to be built in the 2,000,000sqft industrial park known as Prospero, Ansty located in Coventry / Rugby. Development is expected to commence in August 2018 with final completion by October 2019.

Manse Opus have been appointed by Rolls-Royce to lead development and regeneration of surplus land owned by Rolls-Royce.  The 200 acre industrial park will provide an anticipated 2,000,000sqft of modern manufacturing buildings alongside the retained Rolls-Royce operations, MTC, and the Sainsburys regional HQ.

David Mitchell and Richard Smith joint managing directors of the Manse Opus joint venture commented, “We are delighted to have secured this planning consent.  It marks the beginning of construction for one of the Midlands’ most important industrial parks.  This deal with Meggitt is the largest in the region to our knowledge for many many years, a reflection on the quality of the location, what has been created by Homes England at Ansty Park and what Manse Opus is in the process of creating on the surplus Rolls-Royce land.”
