Wain Estates lodges plans for 268,000 sq ft industrial 

A 19-acre employment scheme is the next chunk of the developer’s 1,665-acre Carrington Estate regeneration to come forward. 

Wain Estates, previously known as Himor, has lodged a detailed planning application with Trafford Council for Enterprise Park, a 268,000 sq ft industrial scheme. 

The project will feature 10 units ranging from 5,000 sq ft to 56,000 sq ft.  

Wain Estates development director Jack Brister said: “Carrington Enterprise Park is the next phase of our strategic, long-term investment to transform the 1,665-acre Carrington Estate into a series of well-connected residential neighbourhoods and employment centres. 

“It will provide a range of units suitable for a mix of occupiers that will foster business growth and development and help create new jobs.” 

Subject to planning approval, work on Enterprise Park could begin in September and complete in January 2023. 

The submission of plans for the next phase of Carrington follows Wain Estate’s decision to put the first phase up for sale. 

Last week, JLL was instructed to sell the 211,000 sq ft Carrington Gateway for around £33m. 

The Carrington Estate currently has permission for 597 homes, 1m sq ft of employment space, 13,000 sq ft of retail accommodation and around seven acres of public open space. 

In April, Place North West reported that Wain Estates was drawing up plans for an additional 1m sq ft of employment space.
