Trafalgar House and PowerGen are believed to have won conditional government planning approval for a massive £380 million Channel Tunnel freight depot in Warwickshire.The depot will be at Hams Hall, near Coleshill in north Warwickshire and could create up to 5,000 jobs on site with another 2,000 in the surrounding area, said Neil Pountney, national construction spokesman for the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors.The 160 ha site will house a freight terminal and business park and is likely to take about three years to complete.The decision to go ahead with Hams Hall came after an 11-month public inquiry when it was originally proposed to build about 550,000 sq m of industrial and distribution buildings.
