Green light for massive Tesco warehouse

Tesco has received planning consent for a 900,000 sq ft distribution warehouse at Whitely, South Reading on the site of the former Courage Brewery, which overlooks Junction 11 of the M4. Anyone who travels on the M4 will immediately recognise the site as the location of the huge wind turbine which sits next to the M4.

Both Reading and Wokingham Borough Councils’ planning committees approved the scheme as the site straddles both boroughs.

The aim is to open the warehouse by Christmas 2012. James Wiggam of Tesco said: “We are proud to be able to bring jobs and investment to Reading. We have worked closely with the local community and council to develop these proposals and have been overwhelmed by the positive response to them.”

It is estimated that the site will create 1,000 jobs in the area and the construction phase of the project would also provide more than 150 jobs.

The distribution warehouse will be built to BREAM Excellent standards.
