Bentley Motors’ £40m expansion approved

The luxury car manufacturer will add 500,000 sq ft to its Crewe base after Cheshire East Council gave consent to proposals at its planning committee yesterday.

An engineering technical centre, design centre, and business building are to be constructed on an 11-acre site opposite Bentley’s office and warehouse complex on Pyms Lane. The plot is currently made up of two car parks owned by Bentley, and a Council Waste Depot, which is being relocated.

Designed by AHR Architects, the three blocks will range between one and five-storeys in height.

Bentley Motors is the largest employer in Crewe, with more than 4,000 staff.

According to documents submitted with the application, Bentley will relocate existing facilities to the new site, allowing it additional space for future manufacturing expansion.
