MCR secures 55,000 sq ft Ellesmere Port consent 

Cheshire West and Chester Council has approved proposals for an industrial scheme on a 3.3-acre plot between junctions nine and 10 of the M53. 

MCR Property Group vehicle Silvershaw acquired the Chapterhouse Close site in Ellesmere Port in April 2022 and has now secured planning approval for its redevelopment into a single 55,000 sq ft logistics unit. 

The scheme, designed by Bate and Taylor Architects and known as Charter 55, will comprise a steel portal frame with 12-metre eaves and six dock-level doors. 

Legat Owen and Sixteen Real Estate have been appointed to find an occupier for the unit, which will not be built speculatively. 

Mark Diaper, director at Legat Owen, said the building could be delivered within nine months of an occupier signing a contract for it. 

“Charter 55 will be located within an already busy and thriving industrial area, very close to the motorway and main road network, and will offer 50,000 sq ft of warehouse with 5,000 sq ft of good quality first floor office,” Diaper said. 

“The build-to-suit scheme in Charterhouse Close will enable any occupier to have full involvement in the design and build of the building. Although the completed property is available to let, we may consider offers to sell.” 

Charles Denby, MCR fund manager, added: “Ellesmere Port is an up-and-coming area that has seen significant investment in local infrastructure and speculative development in the mid and big box market, so we are confident there will be strong interest in the site and have already been speaking to interested parties about it.” 

Roman Summer advised MCR on planning matters. To learn more about the scheme, search for reference number 22/02880/FUL on Cheshire West and Chester’s planning portal.
