Bentley and Pochin schemes set for Cheshire East go-ahead
Major schemes proposed by Pochin and Bentley Motors are to go before Cheshire East’s planning committee on 1 February with recommendations for approval.
Pochin’s Admiral Court scheme on Electra Way in Crewe, comprises 66,000 sq ft of office space across four storeys, and will have 182 parking spaces. The scheme sits on an empty plot between an Ibis hotel and the headquarters of Wulvern Housing, and is recommended for approval subject to small contributions to traffic management schemes and travel plan monitoring.
The Middlewich property business has again teamed up with AEW Architects on the project, along with HOW Planning.
Bentley intends to construct a 92,536 sq ft logistics facility on existing hardstanding to the east of its Pym’s Lane plant, on a plot that has already been incorporated into the Bentley estate. The facility will be used purely for storage rather than manufacturing, and will link to existing storage facilities.
The proposal also allows for the improvement of parking areas to accommodate heavier vehicles. Uttoxeter-based consulting engineer ABA Consulting is working with the luxury carmaker on the scheme.
