Caddick lodges 360,000 sq ft Wigan shed plan

Located off Lockett Road in Ashton-in-Makerfield, the scheme will deliver an injection of space into an undersupplied market, according to the developer.

Caddick Developments has submitted an application to Wigan Council to build a 360,000 sq ft industrial unit.

The scheme, known as Ashton Park would be constructed on a 19-acre site between South Lancashire Industrial Estate and Glenbrook’s proposed 625,000 sq ft Meridian 6.

The plans have been lodged in outline with a final decision on the configuration of the scheme to be taken at a later date.

Caddick is targeting a BREEAM ‘excellent” accreditation and is planning to incorporate EV charging facilities, a solar panel-ready roof, battery storage areas, and air source heat pumps.

KPP Architects is leading on design and Ryan & May is the planning consultant.

Tom Park, associate development director at Caddick Developments, said: “This application gives us the opportunity to bring forward much-needed logistics space to a well-established but currently undersupplied, M6 location, whilst reflecting our commitment to creating best-in-class sustainable developments.

“Our proposals will also contribute £46.2m to the local economy a year, boosting economic growth in this area, and creating better opportunities for residents in Ashton-in-Makerfield and across Wigan.”

Unless the access roads are new and link directly to the M6 if they don’t then the value of homes in the area will plummet

By William Roberts

Once again Ashton bearing the full front of it. More lorries in the already congested streets.
