Jaguar Land Rover has submitted plans to build a new logistics hub on land near to its plant in Solihull.
The site will be used by the car manufacturing giant to receive and store parts to supply to its production facility nearby and the overall scheme will cover 1.04 million square feet.
A design statement supporting the application said:
"Jaguar Land Rover is a strong, healthy and vibrant company, well-positioned, strategically and financially, for future growth.
"Delivery of the logistics operations centre would contribute to ensuring that Jaguar Land Rover increases its efficiencies, capabilities and overall business resilience."
The submission of the plans follows a year of major investment across JLR's operations in the West Midlands.
The company announced the creation of 250 jobs across its Special Operations division,which was formed two years ago, as part of a £30 million investment in July and last month confirmed it would split production of the new Land Rover Discovery across its Solihull and Slovakia factories.
