The site is part of the Gateway Peterborough development located at the junction of the A1 and the A605, which already has consent for up to 5 million sq ft of industrial and distribution buildings.

It is expected that the new distribution hub will create between 500 and 1,000 local jobs.

HoF chief executive Nigel Oddy said: “House of Fraser has seen phenomenal growth of its ecommerce business in recent years and as a result, we need additional warehouse capacity to meet future supply chain needs and to meet demand for products from our customers.”
