Tesco gets green light for new dot.com warehouse in Crawley

Tesco has secured planning permission for a 120,000 sq ft home shopping warehouse in Crawley. The warehouse will help to strengthen Tesco's dot.com home delivery business and create around 500 jobs.

Tesco said the building will feature the latest technology to ensure energy efficiency and to reduce carbon emissions. This includes 15% roof lights, automatic lighting systems, energy efficient freezer fans, use of recycled building materials in construction, and the installation of a combined heat and power plant.

The supermarket giant is aiming to become a zero-carbon business by 2050. 
 
Tesco said the warehouse will serve a large part of South West London and Sussex to support its on-line grocery shopping and delivery service, and will also help ease pressure on local stores.

Tony Fletcher, corporate affairs manager at Tesco, commented: "We have closely with the local community and council to develop the proposals that will provide an economic boost to Crawley by providing hundreds of new jobs."
