Approval for FIREM’s 1m sq ft Wrexham industrial

FI Real Estate Management is working to develop three warehouses on a 62-acre industrial estate off Bryn Lane.

Full approval will be in the hands of Wrexham County Council officers, after the authority’s planning committee approved delegated final permission at the outline stage earlier this week.

On the Bryn Lane site, which is included in Wrexham’s Local Development Plan, FIREM is looking to create a trio of logistics warehouse and distribution units, office accommodation, and 600 parking spaces.

Up to 1m sq ft floor space would be made available with service yards, HGV parking, internal circulation, landscaping, and ancillary work.

The units will have a maximum height of 25m. The first would offer 208,000 sq ft, unit two takes up 230,000 sq ft, and the third shed is to offer 562,000 sq ft of space.

The project team features Modern City Architecture and Urbanism, Plan Red, Wardell Armstrong, MD Landscape, Bradley Marshall, United Environmental Services, Conops Entomology, SP Associates, and Prime Transport.

Full planning permission was granted to demolish existing structures on the site.

This approval also covers access, earthworks, drainage, landscaping, and the creation of an ‘ecology zone’ to include mitigation measures.

Afterwards Tim Knowles, founder and managing director of FI Real Estate Management said: “This latest milestone in Wrexham builds on our long-term strategy to drive employment
opportunities in North Wales.

“We’re committed to ensuring our work delivers real social and economic impact for the community.

“Currently 4000 people are employed by our existing community at Wrexham Industrial Estate and this latest milestone has the potential to create another 1000 jobs for local residents.

“We’re consistently seeing rising demand in Wrexham for high-quality, flexible industrial space that meets occupier sustainability targets, and we’ve already had significant interest in our latest space, Wrexham 1M.”

At the same planning committee meeting, councillors deferred making a decision for a drive-thru McDonald’s at Plas Coch Retail Park, having requested more traffic information from officers. The proposal had been recommended for approval.
