Travis Perkins gets go-ahead for Warrington RDC

Warrington Borough Council has granted planning permission for Travis Perkins’ 700,000 sq ft regional logistics centre at Omega North.

The £35m logistics centre will supply Travis Perkins wholesale and retail outlets across the region, supporting around 450 jobs on site.

Geoff Cooper, chief executive of the Travis Perkins Group, said: “This is an exciting time for the entire group. We are growing our already extensive product portfolio, and our new RDC in Warrington will enhance our offering by improving the supply of products to our branch network. We always work hard to put our customers first, and this is another important development.”

Construction is expected to be completed in 2014 with operation planned for 2015.

Brakes and Hermes, both have logistics hubs under construction on Omega North. Only two plots now remain available on Omega North; 2.9 acres close to junction 8 on the motorway frontage, and 3.25 acres next to Brakes.

OWL is a joint venture between Miller Developments and KUC Properties, in partnership with landowner the Homes and Communities Agency and supported by Warrington Borough Council and the Cheshire and Warrington LEP.
