Plans for new Eddie Stobart warehouse at Stretton Green Distribution Park

PLANS for a new ‘state-of-the-art’ Eddie Stobart warehouse have been revealed, with the proposal tipped to bring more than 700 new jobs to the town.

A new £75m warehouse facility will be constructed at the logistics firm’s Appletonbase under an application for planning permission submitted to Warrington Borough Council.

The 630,000sq ft building, which would be built in addition to Eddie Stobart’s current home at Stretton Green Distribution Park, will create 480 permanent jobs on the site and support another 250 off-site employees.
