Planning permission granted for major warehouse at Wigan business park
The Derwent Group has achieved planning permission for a 117,000 sq ft warehouse at Glass House Business Park in Wigan.
The consent comprises a 100,000 sq ft stand-alone unit, with 17,000 sq ft of multi-let trade counter units.
The group was acting on behalf of the Albert Gubay Charitable Foundation.
This significant project marks a strategic move to reposition the entire estate as part of a major redevelopment initiative.
The aim is to not only introduce a state-of-the-art warehouse facility but also to enhance the overall appeal of the park by creating improved amenities, which is earmarked for future phases.
Situated in a prime location with excellent connectivity to junction 25 of the M6, less than 0.5 miles away, Glass House Business Park capitalises on Wigan’s exceptional employment resources and boasts a skilled workforce that surpasses the UK average, making it a pivotal area for development.
Andrew McCormack, Senior Asset Manager at The Derwent Group, said: “This is a highly deliverable scheme and we are actively seeking pre-let enquiries with a view to having the stand-alone building ready for a new occupier within 12 months.
“With an acute lack of supply in the market, this Grade A accommodation in Wigan addresses a critical need in the region, enhancing the economic landscape of Wigan and providing businesses with top-tier facilities.”
B8 Real Estate and CBRE have been retained as the joint letting agents for the scheme.
