Local plan

Skandinavisk Transport Center is experiencing new growth due to the fact that the municipality of Køge has approved a new local plan.


Not only is the gross area being expanded with 500.000 square meters, but the local plan also allows construction of warehouses up to 30 meters in height as opposed to the previous 25 meters. STC wished to increase the maximum height because our costumers inquired areas with the possibility of higher ceilings due to the fact that there are automated warehouse systems and other storage equipment that are adapted to this exact height. In Denmark a 25 meter limit is exceptional, so having 30 meters height for construction is a good argument to place your warehouse or terminal on STC.

The local plan for STC marks a part of the business policies of Køge municipality. One of the primary goals is to maintain the position of the municipality as a regional and national center for transport and logistics. A step in this direction is the planned development of STC.

We’ve made the local plan available but unfortunately it’s only in Danish. If you have any questions regarding the local plan, you can call Thomas Kampmann – the contact information is located on the sidebar.
