Property developer Chancerygate, has submitted a planning application for a 212,000 sq ft development at Dunningsbridge Road in Liverpool.
The 13.5 acre site is close to Peel Ports’ recently launched Liverpool 2 deep-water port. It was formerly the Peerless Edible Oils factory which closed more than 20 years ago.
The new development will be known as Mersey Reach, and a planning application has been made for five separate self-contained industrial and logistics units ranging from 11,500 sq ft to 90,000 sq ft.
Mike Walker development director for Chancerygate in the North West said: “We believe that the new deep water port will create extra demand in the area for modern logistics buildings suited to the needs of 21st century occupiers.
