The CTP developer firm has renewed efforts to build an distribution centre for the online retailer Amazon, the news agency ČTK reported on Saturday. The firm has again applied for an environmental impact assessment of the project despite the fact that earlier this year, Amazon said it dropped the plans over opposition from Brno’s City Hall. However, councillors approved the project last month. Amazon is planning to invest around 2.7 billion crowns in the distribution centre that should create up to 2,000 new jobs; another such facility should be built in Dobrovíz outside Prague.
