Merrylees Industrial Estate

Welcome to our consultation website which aims to provide you with regular updates regarding our proposals for the redevelopment of land at the Merrylees Industrial Estate.

Having owned the site since 1984 and operated from it until 2007, Flogas, a Leicestershire based company, and part of one of Europe’s leading Liquid Petroleum Gas (LPG) suppliers, hopes to return to Merrylees with an enhanced storage and distribution facility.

Flogas has recently submitted a planning application to Hinckley & Bosworth Borough Council and hopes to have a decision in the coming months. You can read the full application, including technical studies and reports, by visiting the Hinckley & Bosworth Borough Council website and searching for application reference 18/00564/FUL.

You can find out more about the proposals, including all safety aspects and local benefits, on this website.

Public exhibition

We held a public exhibition for local residents and stakeholders to view our early proposals on Thursday 26 April 2018 at Thornton Community Centre.

The public exhibition allowed local people to view our proposals, speak with members of the project team and provide us with feedback on the plans before we submit a full planning application.

You can find out more about the proposals we displayed here.


We welcome your feedback on our proposals. You can do send us your comments by filling in our online feedback form.
