Revised plans in for Trident Business Park
After St Modwen Logistics’s proposals for more than 125,000 sq ft of warehouses in Warrington were met with community backlash in 2021, the developer reconfigured the plans to reduce the height of the industrial scheme and adjusted its layout.
Revised plans for the redevelopment of Trident Business Park would still deliver two warehouses off Warrington Road in Risley. The larger building would provide 80,661 sq ft of space, while the smaller one would provide 45,336 sq ft.
However, the proposed height of the largest building has been reduced from 12.5 metres to 10 metres in order to reduce its visual impact.
A revised layout also means that the warehouses would face away from nearby homes, reducing noise and light pollution.
The eight-acre site is currently made up of 91,600 sq ft of vacant offices and the 6,350 sq ft Noggin Inn pub, which would be demolished prior to construction.
Proposals seek to decrease the number of car parking spaces from 204 to 118. A total of 26 HGV spaces would be provided.
UMC Architects designed the proposal for St Modwen Logistics. Planning Prospects is the planning consultant.
