There is to be no further logistics development at Omega South, once current planning consents have been used.
The latest plans for the 446-acre Warrington site – already home to Asda and The Hut warehouses – move away from logistics to housing.
Three logistics sites are as yet undeveloped on the Zone 7 section of Omega South. They have outline planning permission granted in 2014, and are unaffected by the latest proposals.
New proposals include 1,100 new homes along with local shops, restaurants and cafes, public house/ bar, a care home, and a hotel, supported by extensive landscaping and wildlife habitat preservation; transport studies have also being undertaken to inform local road and junction improvements.
Omega Warrington Ltd has submitted an Outline Planning Application for the next stage of development.
Omega Warrington Ltd is a joint venture between Miller Developments and KUC Properties Ltd, in partnership with landowner the Homes and Communities Agency and supported by Warrington Borough Council and the Cheshire and Warrington LEP.
Warrington Council are expected to agree this plans this autumn after which the developerswill begin marketing residential plots to high quality housebuilders.
It is anticipated that the residential and mixed-use part of Omega will be delivered in phases over ten years, depending on market demand.
