Revised plans for turning the former Daw Mill Colliery in north Warwickshire into a 'low-density rail hub' have been revealed.
The site would be used by a company related to the rail industry to manufacture goods and then distribute them, using trains to carry products to and from the site.
Harworth Estates, the company planning to redevelop the site, revised their planning application after community groups, local residents and councillors expressed their views on the plans.
Changes to the planned development include:
- Reducing the size of the overall built development by nearly two-thirds to 265,000 sq ft
- Cutting the proposed amount of traffic to and from the site
- Reducing the number of HGV movements to around 50 per day
Harworth is holding an open public consultation event on Tuesday 14 July from 5.00pm-8.00pm at Nether Whitacre Village Hall, Station Road, where it will reveal plans in more detail.
