There’s no doubt that this first phase of Liberty Park, Widnes, will help to kick-start further economic growth.”
Dan Gallagher, joint managing director of Stoford Developments, said: “The availability of speculative buildings is a key driver for attracting occupiers to this region and completing a high-quality development of this size will undoubtedly help to relieve the demand.”
