Winsford Industrial continues to grow and create new jobs
12 February 2019The expansion of Winsford Industrial Estate continues with the Council and Public Sector Plc gaining planning approval to develop a new area of land on the site.
Work is scheduled to begin this month to remove trees and shrubbery on 25 acres of land opposite Tiger Trailers’ new manufacturing facility on Road One.
Once the land is cleared, work can begin to make the land suitable for construction work and to provide new business premises for the organisations queueing up to be part of this ongoing success story.
Councillor Brian Clarke, Cabinet Member for Economic Development and Infrastructure, said: “Winsford Industrial Estate’s ongoing expansion is great news for the estate and for the people in the surrounding area. It will lead to the creation of more work opportunities and help enhance the reputation of the estate as a primary place from which to do business.”
Outline planning consent has been secured for the land with three individual sites available:
Pete Price, chairman of the Winsford 1-5 BID, said: “This development is great news for the local area which continues to develop and change the landscape of our business area. The Industrial estate has diversified over the years and has businesses now not only in manufacturing processing and distribution but numerous other sectors of business.
“They trade with companies globally and have a lot of visitors to the estate to do businesses but have never been in a position to accommodate them nearby. The development with a hotel complex will allow not only business visitors to stay in the area but other people to stay in the local area. This will create employment for local people and continue the growth in the area.”
The Council, Public Sector Plc and Cheshire and Warrington Local Enterprise Partnership have been working in partnership to develop this important and strategic employment site. The five year scheme will boost economic growth and help the town to prosper.
Up to 1,500 jobs could be created at the site and there are also plans to build complementary uses including a petrol station, a pub and a hotel. All enquiries about the available sites should be made to Legat Owen: www.legatowen.co.uk
