Miller lodges plans for final Omega West shed 

A 420,000 sq ft industrial unit forms the fourth phase of the project, part of the wider industrial masterplan that spans Warrington and St Helens off Junction 8 of the M62. 

Designed by Chetwood Architects, the final element of the four-part project would see a 22-acre site off Catalina Approach transformed into a logistics unit. 

The application follows on from a hybrid permission for the 184-acre Omega West scheme that was granted following a call in by the secretary of state in 2021. 

An 870,000 sq ft unit for Home Bargains was the first part of the project to progress. 

Last year, a further two sheds were granted planning permission – a 505,000 sq ft warehouse let to Iceland and a 308,000 sq ft unit, which is yet to be let. 

The 308,000 sq ft unit is being forward funded on a speculative basis by Barings. 

Miller Developments has now submitted a planning application to St Helens Council for the fourth and final shed. 

The submission follows St Helens Council having granted consent earlier this year for the diversion of the Whittle Brook, required to facilitate the construction of unit four. 

Quod is advising Miller on its proposals. 

Omega West forms part of the wider Omega Business Park, a project developed through a partnership between Homes England, Miller Developments and KUC Properties.  

In the past seven years, more than 6m sq ft of logistics developments have been built at Omega. 

To find out more about the project, search for reference number P/2023/0189/RES on St Helens Council’s calendar of meetings.
