Stephenson Halliday prepared a landscape and visual assessment for Lidl’s proposed Regional Distribution Centre at Eurocentral, near Holytown, North Lanarkshire.

Our landscape architects and graphics team worked closely with the Client and landscape contractor to develop an appropriate landscape design for the proposed development, which comprises a large warehouse with integrated offices (measuring 415m x 139m, with a maximum
height of 20.7m) and associated hardstanding and parking areas.

The landscape design placed a strong emphasis on the use of native scrub and woodland to mitigate the loss of existing trees on the site. The proposed design also includes native wildflower meadow and several balancing ponds with associated marginal grassland. Thereafter, we prepared a landscape aftercare and maintenance strategy, which provided advice for Years 1-5 as well as longer-term maintenance.

Following successful planning consent in 2017, construction work has begun with a view to opening in the winter of 2019.
