Proposals for new food storage facility alongside £130 million Magnavale site in Easton near Grantham could be approved

Plans to build a food storage facility to accompany a £130 million cold storage centre could be approved next week.

Applicants Easton Properties Limited seek to build a food processing facility with a loading and service yard to work alongside the Magnavale development in Easton, near Grantham.

South Kesteven District Council’s planning committee will discuss the plans in a meeting next Thursday (May 16).

It would have a total footprint of 18,630 sqm, measuring 175m in length, 110m in width and a height of 22m.

The existing site would also repurpose a brownfield site where a former warehouse stood, but this was demolished as it was not fit for purpose.

If approved, the development could also create up to 200 jobs and would be operational 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Magnavale’s new development, in the former McCain’s factory site, is set to be the highest facility of its kind in the UK.
