Crag Digital Limited have applied for planning permission to construct a second data centre

This permitted the demolition of an existing logistics centre on site, and the construction of a combined heat and power plant for the data centre.

Crag Digital are seeking permission for a similar two-storey data centre (44,323 sq.m) at the site.

Plans for a similar data centre include proposals for an associated single storey combined heat and power plant with a gross floor area of 7,109sq.m, with ancillary two-storey operations building with part basement with a gross floor area of 2,998sq.m. 

The data centre is set to comprise offices, canteen, computer and associated support areas, electrical component rooms, plant and associated equipment. 

The combined heat and power plant is set to comprise a generator and gas fired engine rooms, boiler rooms, chiller rooms, plant and associated equipment. 

On the site is a previously granted gas pressure reduction station and a previously granted 110kV substation solely for the use of Crag Digital Limited in support of this development. 

Also proposed as revisions are removal of two end masts for undergrounding of overhead 38kV power lines, revisions to a security hut, omission of cooling towers, and all revised associated storage tanks, flues, access roads, services, entrance gates and perimeter fencing at 3 meter high, landscaping and infrastructure inclusive of 94 car parking spaces

The development will be consequent on previously granted demolition of the existing logistics centre and associated ancillary buildings.
