Chancerygate acquired the site from gas distribution company SGN for an undisclosed sum. Currently, the land is a brownfield site which previously housed above-ground high-pressure gas storage tanks.

Neighbouring occupiers to the proposed development include builders’ merchants Jewson and trade kitchen supplier Howdens, as well as Ford, Jaguar and Volkswagen car dealerships.

Chancerygate development director Jonathan Lee, said: ‘This site offers a fantastic opportunity to develop in one of the prime urban logistics and industrial property locations in the south east.

‘Chichester’s proximity to excellent transport connections means our proposed development will be best placed to serve West Sussex and the wider south east of England.

‘The scheme will provide much-needed high specification, sustainable urban logistics and industrial accommodation. This will help stimulate further investment and job creation, and support growth within the local and regional economy.’

Chancerygate will submit its plans for the development to Chichester District Council towards the end of the year.

Founded in 1995, Chancerygate is an urban logistics property developer and asset manager with offices in London, Warrington, Birmingham, Bristol and Milton Keynes.
