The Quadrant, Birchwood Park
Birchwood Park owner MEPC has submitted plans to Warrington Council for the development of seven industrial and distribution units on the Quadrant area of the Birchwood Park development. The proposals are to develop 130,000 ft² of industrial space across seven two-storey properties, along with 230 car parking spaces.
The existing site currently comprises 50 hectares of site with 1m sqm of commercial space with more than 145 companies which employ almost 4,200 staff.
Vectos have acted for Birchwood Park over many years and as part of this particular scheme extensive input was provided in order to develop the proposed site layout, specifically with regards to access by larger articulated service vehicles. A Transport Statement was also produced to demonstrate the potential impact created by this commercial development in term of both highways impact and internal car parking demand. Planning consent was subsequently granted.
