The 24-acre Ditton Park site, Widnes, is being developed by landowner Ainscough Strategic Land and commercial property developer Stoford. They already have outline planning consent for three units within 3 MG, Halton’s rail freight distribution park.

It will be the largest current commercial development underway within Merseyside.

3MG provides rail connected distribution centres and an on-site intermodal rail freight terminal. It is destined to be one of the UK’s largest inter-modal logistics parks and offers unrivalled access to the UK’s deep-sea ports. It will create up to 5,000 new jobs, and is in the process of reclaiming up to 120 acres of contaminated land.

It is part of the Liverpool City Region ‘SuperPort’ scheme which provides the industry with a low cost, low carbon solution for moving goods to and from Northern UK, especially to the Atlantic Gateway area, the largest, most densely populated region of the UK outside London (during the journey).

The proposed accommodation includes units of 196,500 sq ft including 9,500 sq ft of offices, 174,250 sq ft including two-storey offices of 8,600 sq ft, and 85,800 sq ft including offices of 5,960 sq ft.

Birmingham-based Stoford is a leading specialist in occupier-focused development. It has delivered over 10 million sq ft of pre-let development and in 2015 has more than 950,000 sq ft of pre-let space under construction throughout the UK.
