Gladman gets green light for Runcorn site

Gladman Developments has got the green light to build a 361,205 sq ft speculative distribution warehouse near Runcorn, Cheshire.

The Cheshire-based developer plans to start work on the new unit, known as G-Space 360, at the end of October on a 20.74-acre site at Manor Park on the A558, close to Junction 11 of the M56, which it acquired from national regeneration agency English Partnerships.

Gladman Developments won planning permission for one single distribution and industrial warehouse facility.

The facility is expected to have an end development value of more than £20 million and could provide up to 400 new jobs.

Manor Park is already an established distribution park where Lidl, Hagermeyer, Business Post and Matthew Clarke all have large units. According to Gladman Developments’ director David Gladman, the firm is keen to make a start on site, having already received strong interest in the new unit from end users.
