Winsford Gateway Update

Plans for a 225,075 sq ft logistics unit in Cheshire have been brought forward by Doncaster-based Rula Developments.

An application has been submitted to Cheshire West and Chester Council for the scheme at Winsford Gateway, an industrial-led strategic employment site at junction 18 of the M6.

The speculative development responds to major occupier demand for high quality, purpose-built logistics space in the region.

It proposes to provide 213,159 sq ft of warehousing space alongside 11,916 sq ft of office accommodation with flexibility to expand on the prominent 12.6-acre plot.

With capacity to support around 275 full time jobs the building design incorporates the highest sustainability credentials with EPC A and BREEAM Excellent ratings.

Subject to planning consent, construction could begin as soon as March 2024, with a fast track delivery programme allowing occupation by September 2024.

The application follows Rula’s acquisition of 25 acres of development land at Winsford Gateway earlier this year.

In May Rula also submitted applications to speculatively deliver two smaller industrial units offering 74,508 sq ft and 27,728 sq ft of accommodation on the established estate.

Rula has previously delivered a 168,000 sq ft factory for Tiger Trailers at Winsford Gateway and, more recently, completed a 1.6-acre roadside petrol filling station with retail amenity for The Kay Group, as well as a new 60,000 sq ft storage facility.

The wider site is already well established with more than 100 businesses employing around 4,000 people.
