Our client, Walton & Co requested on behalf of FKN Limited for Discovery’s help with a desk study and site investigation in relation to their proposed development site. At the time of writing, the 25.98ha site is understood to comprise of three warehouse units with yards, offices, gatehouse, car and lorry parking as well as associated hard standing and infrastructure.
