Prowell Facility
CGI of box manufacturer Prowell's new facility at Ellesmere Port

CWAC consents major employment schemes

Cheshire West & Chester Council has approved the construction of a 111,000 sq ft office building on the last major plot at Parkside’s Chester Business Park, along with Peel’s plans for an 800,000 sq ft, £120m manufacturing facility for tenant Prowell.

The project at the business park was submitted by How Planning in March. The site is on Heronsway, and pulls together three sites, Parkside One, Parkside Two, and Wrexham Road Farm. The architect is Paddock Johnson Partnership.

At Lees Lane in Ellesmere Port, Peel has submitted a hybrid application for the 45.2-acre former Cabot Carbon site close to the M53. The end user of the site will be cardboard box manufacturer Prowell, which already has a presence in the town. Prowell has previously said that the project would see it invest upwards of £120m in the site.

The first phase seeks detailed consent for a 328,000 manufacturing facility, with associated works, while Peel also made an outline application for a 468,000 sq ft building in phase two. UMC Architects has designed the scheme.
