Major expansion of March Cold Stores – that could see capacity doubled – has been unveiled at a public consultation.

The company, based in Marwick Road and owned by Savage Haulage, circulated neighbouring streets ahead of the meeting that was attended by 14 residents.
The consultation is the first stage in the process of submitting a planning application to Fenland District Council that could see an additional 4,000 square metre storage unit erected to support the existing 3,500 square metres of storage.
The company employs 70 people directly at their factory and at least 20 new jobs will be created if the proposals go ahead but other jobs locally such as drivers will be required.
March Cold Store currently has capacity for 6,000 pallets of chilled and frozen produce – the extension will double that capacity.
