Holmes Chapel business park in for planning
Wilmslow developer Aus-Bore has launched marketing on its Manor Point business park scheme in Holmes Chapel, which is expected to go before Cheshire East’s planning committee in December.
Savills and Williams Sillitoe have been instructed as joint agents on the park, which will comprise seven blocks with a total of 17 units available as long or short leasehold. The total size will be 89,136 sq ft, with the two largest blocks being around 25,000 sq ft each.
Aus-Bore’s planning application was submitted by The Planning Studio in September and a site visit made in October. The application is hybrid, seeking full consent for the 24,000 sq ft Block A, and outline consent for the remainder. C4 Consulting is the project’s architect.
The land was previously occupied by the Manor Business Park, but its industrial buildings have been demolished and the site is mostly scrubland.
Aus-Bore said that the development, a mile from junction 18 of the M6, has the potential for trade counter, storage and distribution, light industrial, retail, leisure, medical, office and e-tail use. The site, off Manor Lane, is also five minutes‘ walk from Holmes Chapel station.
The surrounding area houses a mix of commercial and residential use, including a large Aldi store, Holmes Chapel Business Park and various retail and leisure operators.
Jonathan Atherton, industrial director at Savills, said: “This is a rare opportunity to acquire brand new business space in the highly sought after area of Holmes Chapel.
“Given the scope for the variety of potential uses and mix of freehold and leasehold opportunities, we are anticipating very strong market interest.”
