PLANS to "regenerate" part of a Southampton industrial estate by building a huge storage centre have been unveiled.

Polystar Plastics has submitted an application to replace a collection of factory units on its site at the junction of Peel Street and Belvidere Terrace.

The proposed new building, part of which would about 60ft tall, would be used to store finished goods.

Polystar's application describes it as a high quality industrial unit.

It adds: "The proposals will regenerate an area of Southampton which could benefit from further investment and bring forward a new building to help sustain commercial activities in the area."

The 1,244 sq m building, on the Northam Industrial Estate, would be used by Polystar for storage and distribution purposes.

"Activity generated by this development will be contained within the site to prevent disturbances to nearby neighbouring residential properties," says the application.

"A central aim of this project is to improve the interconnection between the various sites forming the Polystar company."

The application says the proposed development would cut the number of vehicle movements on the Polystar site, thus reducing journeys on surrounding roads.

"This will help to ease congestion in the roads and streets in surrounding neighbourhoods and

commuter routes."

A Public Notice giving details of the scheme has been published by Southampton City Council, which will determine the application.

Here is a round-up of other Public Notices outlining licensing applications, temporary road closures and other changes affecting communities in the area.
