The developer has advanced plans to build four warehouses totalling more than 183,000 sq ft at the site off Ravenscraig Road, in a scheme designed by architect AEW.
The 11-acre site, known as Raven Locks, received outline planning consent for up to 200,000 sq ft of employment and industrial space in 2017, and the developer is now progressing with a reserved matters application.
This includes four separate units of 64,000 sq ft; 46,000 sq ft; 41,000 sq ft; and 32,000 sq ft, along with parking for 245 vehicles. The 46,000 sq ft unit also has the potential to be subdivided into three, based on tenant demand.
Other industrial use nearby includes the Oakhill Trading estate, while the site also borders the Cleggs Lane Industrial Estate, and is near the M61.
The architect’s design & access statement said: “The overall development will have a positive socioeconomic impact that will benefit the local and wider area by reinstating a previously developed area of land; encouraging inward investment into the local area; increasing expenditure in the local area; creating jobs in both the construction and operational phases and ensuring long term management of the site.”
