Bericote secures approval for 66,000 sq ft St Helens shed

The local authority greenlit the Leamington Spa-based developer’s plans for a warehouse at the industrial park during yesterday’s planning committee meeting.

The decision was made after more than an hour’s worth of discussion, where St Helens councillors cited concerns over a lack of knowledge as to who the end user of the 66,000 sq ft industrial unit might be and what that could mean for traffic.

Ultimately Bericote Properties prevailed, with councillors voting to accept the planning officer’s recommendation to approve the application.

With permission in hand, Bericote can proceed with its plans to build the shed on more than five acres of land off Moore Park Way.

The warehouse, which will also include 6,000 sq ft of offices on its first floor, will be in good company. is also home to Kellogg’s and Amazon and sits west of Hydock Industrial Estate.

Access to the shed will be from the Haydock Lane Junction. There are 65 car parking spaces in the approved application, of which 14 are for electric vehicles. Cyclists will have 36 spaces for their bicycles, while motorcycles will have four.

UMC Architects designed the project for Bericote. Lichfields was the planning consultant.

FPCR was the landscape architect. Hydrock advised on transport and mining issues. Tetra Tech was the noise and air quality consultant. The LED lighting consultant was MBA Consulting Engineers. The flood risk assessor and drainage strategist was Burrows Graham.

What a farce. Hardly surprising Labour are no longer sitting comfortably in Haydock. Diabolical.

Was a foregone conclusion really wasn’t it, let’s face it, there’s going to be more warehouses in Haydock soon than people isn’t there😥

More bloody concrete over brown spaces. More pollution, more traffic on roads that can’t handle the traffic now. Haydock is suffering from the local Council who don’t care about the residents.
