Issa brothers secure approval for 200,000 sq ft Burnley industrial
Monte Blackburn’s Burnley Bridge South warehouses make up just the first part of the masterplan for the 32-acre site off Accrington Road.
That masterplan calls for 538,200 sq ft of industrial space by Junction 9 of the M65. The two recently approved warehouses together make up about 37% of that space and are the first building elements to secure planning permission since the Issa brothers’ development company purchased Burnley Bridge South in November last year.
Both of Monte Blackburn’s warehouses were granted planning permission by Burnley Council under delegated powers in July.
The smaller of the two comprises 39,100 sq ft spread across a ground floor and mezzanine. There will also be 48 car parking spaces.
The larger scheme offers 165,200 sq ft of industrial and office space, with a ground floor, first floor, and mezzanine. There would be 259 car parking spaces provided.
Both projects are set to achieve a BREEAM rating of Very Good, according to an analysis by consultant Sustainably Built.
They were designed by Campbell Driver Partnership Architects, with planning consultant Freeths securing permission from the council. DEP Landscape Architecture and Dragonfly Consulting round out the project team.
