Marshall plots 545,000 sq ft Widnes shed
The industrial developer is planning to build the £65m scheme on land off Lovels Way.
Marshall CDP will lodge a planning application for the 545,000 sq ft Widnes industrial unit with Halton Council later this month. The formal submission follows a public consultation on the scheme, which was led by Avison Young.
The development, which includes 33,000 sq ft of offices, would be built on a 55-acre site immediately south of Alstom’s Transport Technology Centre.
Alstom won planning consent for a 552,000 sq ft logistics scheme on the site in 2016 but the project was not progressed.
Marshall’s scheme includes two security gatehouses, an electricity substation, a sprinkler tank pump house, and a vehicle wash facility. A total of 380 car parking spaces are proposed along with 102 cycle spaces.
Access to the site will be obtained from the existing roundabout at the end of Lovels Way, which was constructed as part of the Alstom Transport Centre.
As well as Avison Young, the project team features Curtins, ALLP Landscape.
