Langtree and First Panattoni are seeking to bring forward up to 3m sq ft of development at junction 20 of the M6 and junction 9 of the M56, an area it said could deliver up to 4,900 jobs.
Six 56 Warrington sits at Bradley Hall Farm between Grappenhall Lane and is proposed as a major logistics and manufacturing development. Up to 625,000 sq ft of the space is currently earmarked for industrial development.
John Downes, group chief executive of Langtree, said: “Our emerging proposals will ensure that the Warrington economy can continue to grow and broaden the range of jobs on offer to local people.
“The scheme would generate millions of pounds a year in new business rates to fund essential public services and our proposals include significant investment in infrastructure to help ensure traffic is moved away from residential areas on to the motorway network.”
Two public sessions are to be held in mid-October at Grappenhall Community Centre, between 5pm and 7pm on Monday 15 October, and 2pm and 4pm the following day, as part of the consultation process.
Downes added: “We want to hear the public’s views, so in addition to these workshops we’ll be hosting further events, including a drop-in session in the local community later in the year,” said Mr Downes.
Langtree and First Panattoni, which recently hired Dan Burn to head its Northern expansion, said the move comes in response to Warrington Borough Council’s emerging Local Plan, which has identified a need for 941 acres of new employment space over the next 20 years.
