Maro plots 312,000 sq ft Knowsley industrial 

Part of the Halsnead Garden Village masterplan, the unit would sit on a 22-acre site east of Junction 6 of the M62. 

Maro Developments has submitted a planning application for the 312,000 sq ft industrial unit, known as Mercury 62. 

Designed by Fletcher Rae, the development will be accessed via Cronton Road through the creation of two new junctions. 

Avison Young is advising Maro on planning matters. 

The scheme is the latest employment project to come forward on the former Cronton Colliery, which forms part of the 450-acre Halsnead Garden Village. 

Last year, Knowsley Council approved Tritax Symmetry’s plans for 1m sq ft of industrial space at Halsnead.  

Earlier this year, Yodel became the first occupier to take space at the complex, signing a 15-year lease on a 162,000 sq ft shed at Symmetry Park Merseyside. 

Maro’s scheme would be located next to Tritax’s scheme. 

In total, 55 acres of the Halsnead Garden Village masterplan are earmarked for commercial space. 

The project also features plans for 1,600 homes, more than 80 acres of green space and a primary school.

It`s good to see more commercial proposals being put forward in this increasingly in demand part of Knowsley, adjacent to the motorways and near Liverpool Airport.
It`s also good to see Maro being active but wonder if they propose to take on this development or just seek planning permission, as they also gained planning permission in 2020 for a large residential scheme at Brunswick Quay, Liverpool but so far there has been no progress in getting on site.
