Car maker Jaguar Land Rover has submitted plans to develop a vast logistics hub on a green field site next to its Solihull plant.

The near 1m sq ft logistics operations centre will be used to receive and store parts for its Solihull production plant, which assembles Range Rover and Land Rover models.

The scheme also includes 40,000 sq ft of offices space and a triple deck car park with 1,150 spaces.

The site located on green belt consists of eight fields located near Solihull Football Club on Damson Parkway and is bounded to the north by Birmingham International Airport.

Plans drawn up by architect Ridge & Partners provide for a 17m high main building, spanned by a series of pitched roofs covered in photovoltaics. It will offer 78 HGV docks.

The LOC would be clad in corrugated steel at the west, south and east facades. The northern elevation would feature timber-style panelling and glazing.
