BELLINGHAM, MA-The town’s planning board gave the green light to Dunkin Donuts’ proposal to build a 410,000-sf warehouse on a 35-acre parcel on Depot Street. Kathleen Harvey, Bellingham’s town clerk, tells GlobeSt.com that the board voted in favor of the plan. The building, which required a special permit from the town, will serve as the Randolph, MA-based company’s northeast distribution center.

The project was proposed last fall and had met with opposition from a group of local residents who were concerned about the project’s impact on noise and traffic in the area. The company reportedly has about 1,500 franchises in the New England area and products for those stores will be distributed from this location.Harvey notes that the vote requires a 30-day appeals process. If there are no appeals within that timeframe, Dunkin Donuts can move ahead with construction.
