Redsun acquires Bromborough industrial site

Planning permission for 70,000 sq ft of commercial space has already been secured for the five-acre plot, situated south of Croft Retail Park.

Developer Redsun Projects purchased the site for an undisclosed sum from Homes England. Planning permission for four trade counters and three industrial units was secured in September from Wirral Council by planning consultant Broadgrove Planning and Development. C4 Projects is the architect for the Bromborough-based scheme.

An outline application for a drive-through café on the site was also approved.

Redsun is aiming to appoint a contractor and start on site early this year.

Nick Wightman, director at Redsun, said: “For many years people will have driven past this site and wondered why it hadn’t been developed. We’re pleased that our determination has paid off, having finally secured a detailed planning consent to allow us to start construction.”

Legat Owen and B8 Real Estate are the joint agents for the venture. The seven proposed units range from 3,000 sq ft to 24,000 sq ft and will be available as a freehold or leasehold.

Legat Owen director Mark Diaper said: “We expect there to be strong demand from occupiers seeking a high profile and visible location to trade from especially given the prominence of the site next to the popular Croft Retail Park. Early interest and enquiries have been very encouraging, with the drive-through plot already being under offer”

For those interested in learning more, the planning application for the commercial project has a reference number of APP/21/01631 on Wirral Council’s planning portal.

How is the area going to cope with the increased traffic? Getting on and off the Croft at certain times of the day and the weekend is difficult now without any further development.

Maybe people would be less inclined to use their cars if public transport was better, for example after Port Sunlight there was an old branch line direct towards the river ,going right next to the retail complex. If this was re-opened trains eg could run partly on battery from Liverpool James St ,via Birkenhead, to this part of Bromborough, it`s only a mile or so of track needed.

Hi, a statement made of “For many years people will have driven past this site and wondered why it hadn’t been developed“

Ive lived in this area (so very close) and not thought that at all. Infact just the opposite. Appreciating the trees and greenery that surrounded the complex but now currently being torn up.

As someone else has stated, ‘how is traffic going to be controlled and made easy? So much traffic already passes in and out of the complex i can only really see more gridlock around the area, not only on current shopping days of the week but holidays such as Christmas and Easter.

Can this please be explained and will be appreciated.

(Also a mention of a ‘drive through’ cafe. ) i must ask – do we really need another one?
Like to hear other people’s comments though.

Thank you
