Langtree and Panattoni have submitted a planning application for a £180 million logistics development in south Warrington.
The 288,000 sq m development named Six 56 Warrington is next to J20 of the M6 and J9 of the M56.
The scheme will focus on providing space for logistics businesses, said John Downes, Langtree’s group chief executive. “It’s where the greatest demand lies and the jobs are much more diverse and better paid than people perhaps realise,” he said.
The application is expected to be heard by Warrington Borough Council’s planning committee in early Summer. If approved there would be an intensive period of work involved before construction could begin, with tenants expected to occupy buildings from Spring 2021.
