Plans by developer Carpenter Investments to build 189 apartments on the former AJ Beer timber yard on Station Road in Warrington will go before planning committee later this week with a recommendation to approve.
A previously-refused care project that has seen a war of words erupt between the developer and a local councillor, and another politician argue part of the scheme would “resemble a prison”, will go before Warrington’s planning committee this week.
The Warrington-based developer, behind projects including Sci-Tech Daresbury and the regeneration of Parkside Colliery, has reported a 29% increase in net asset value and an increase in profit in its annual results.
Against officer recommendation, Warrington’s planning committee has refused an application by Eddie Stobart Logistics to build a 630,000 sq ft warehouse on green belt land off the M56, leading the company's chief executive to claim it may "look elsewhere" to expand its operations.
Chris McGoff, chief executive of New Care, has called for the resignation of a Warrington councillor over what he claims are “inaccurate, inappropriate, and misleading” comments about the developer’s application for a mixed-use scheme in Lymm.
