Tritax Symmetry gets all-clear for Knowsley shed

Coming in at 272,100 sq ft, the latest warehouse to secure planning permission at the former Cronton Colliery site is set to be built by GMI Construction.

GMI also constructed Tritax Symmetry’s other industrial unit in Knowsley – the 161,000 sq ft Yodel distribution centre, which sits to the east of the recently approved scheme.

Knowsley Council gave the go-ahead for this latest warehouse using delegated powers on Tuesday.

The 84-acre site sits within Halsnead Garden Village – a largescale masterplan that also includes 1,600 homes and a county park.

When Tritax Symmetry is finished building its warehouse, the industrial unit will boast 254,400 sq ft of warehouse space and another 14,400 sq ft of offices. There would also be a 3,000 sq ft transport office and 300 sq ft gate house.

The developer’s plans, drawn up by UMC Architects, also include the provision of 38 HGV parking spaces and 13 motorcycle spaces. There would be areas for 244 cars to park, including 50 EV charging stations and 15 accessible spaces.

Those seeking to get to work using active travel would be able to store their bike at one of 10 shelters. Altogether, the shelters have capacity for 100 cycles to be stored in them.

Gerald Eve was the planning consultant for the scheme. The project team includes E3P, Tyler Grange, Enzygo, Vectos, Hannan Associates, Tier Environmental, The Environment Partnership, and Donald Insall Associates.
