Booth Park

Bruntwood’s Knutsford development approved

Bruntwood's plans for 191,000 sq ft in three new office buildings at Booths Park in Knutsford have been given the go-ahead by Cheshire East Council.

Bruntwood Booth ParkBruntwood will develop one two-storey and two three-storey blocks designed by BDP on an existing car park. The car parking spaces will be replaced by new underground parking.

The scheme is expected to include the provision of a new free bus service to enable staff members to travel from the site into Knutsford town centre, to add to its provision of free bikes for use around the park and the town centre. The company also plans to contribute to highways improvements in the town.

Construction of the first new office building will start once the first building is pre-let.

Chris Roberts, development director at Bruntwood, said: "This is great news for the significant number of companies from the knowledge industry that we want to locate in Cheshire East, as well as our existing customers who we know require additional space over the next few years. We strongly believe that this expansion will result in significant economic benefits for Knutsford, including helping to further boost business for local traders."

Bruntwood said the current office stock at the park will be fully occupied by the end of this month. Bruntwood is advised by planning consultant P4 Planning, architects BDP, transport planning specialists Vectos and economic development and regeneration consultancy Regeneris.

Plans for housing at Booths Park have yet to be submitted to the council.
