Around 5,600sqm of industrial floorspace would be created.

The wider site, which continues west along Eastway, is set to be a 300-strong housing site having received the green light in 2016 and is under construction.

Meanwhile, a bid to build a neurological care centre - run by the Sue Ryder charity - has recently been submitted adjacent to the housing site.

The city council’s planning committee will meet on Thursday, January 11 at the town hall.
