Approval nears for 250,000 Sq ft Middlewich development

Plans to build new units comprising almost 250,000 sq ft of space on the Midpoint 18 Business Park in Middlewich look set to be approved.

Total Developments (NW) is behind the application, which is in two phases.

The first is a full proposal for two sites covering a total of 99,750 sq ft, while the second is outline in nature and concerns six units comprising 147,000 sq ft.

A report to the planning committee at Cheshire East Council – which will meet to make a decision on the scheme on 24 October – said: “This proposal would bring economic benefits through the delivery of new jobs within an established industrial park where the local plan allocates such uses.

“It is compatible with the surrounding development, and the design, scale and form of the building would sit comfortably with those within the locality.

“The impact on neighbouring residential amenity would not be significant.”

Approval has been recommended.
