VF facility plans set for green light
Added on 13 December 2022
Key Growing Ltd, supported by Geoffrey Prince Associates, submitted an application to East Riding of Yorkshire Council earlier this year for an extension to Woodmansey Business Park.
Planning permission is sought for a vertical farm complex (VFC) for growing micro salads, herbs, soft fruits, bulbs and flowers, together with free standing office buildings and starter units, all served by the existing on-site anaerobic digestion plant.
The proposed VFC would have a footprint of 84,000 sq ft, and a total gross international area of 97,400 sq ft.
Four two-storey office buildings would provide a total of 41,500 sq ft, with eight single-storey starter units measuring a total of 31,000 sq ft would be created.
The plans also include an energy management and distribution building, a water attenuation pond incorporating a wildlife and nature park, internal circulation road, car and lorry parking, and landscaping.
