Detailed Planning Consent Granted for major industrial scheme at Deeside

Detailed planning consent has been granted for a major new 87,000 sq ft industrial speculative scheme, to be developed in Deeside, North Wales.

Joint development partners, Trebor and Maple Grove Developments, will be delivering the scheme known as Boundary Park, with a commencement on site shortly. Situated within the Deeside Enterprise Zone, the Park has been supported by a Welsh Property Development Grant.

Once complete, the development, which has been designed by AJA Architects and will be built by Eric Wright Construction will provide a range of high quality industrial units for manufacturing or logistics uses, ranging in size from 10,000 sq ft to 50,000 sq ft and will be available for occupation in Autumn 2019. Industrial units will be available on a leasehold or freehold basis.

Bob Tattrie, Managing Partner for Trebor Developments, on behalf of the JV, commented, “Achieving this significant milestone of being granted planning will allow us to proceed with this major industrial scheme that will provide regeneration in the Deeside area and quality, new, accommodation to meet occupiers’ requirements.”

Economy and Transport Secretary Ken Skates said: “I’m delighted Welsh Government has been able to assist with this Deeside Enterprise Zone development. My Economic Action plan emphasises the importance of high quality property in supporting and facilitating business expansion by ensuring we have investment ready sites and premises at key locations across Wales, and this investment is a fine example of how we are facilitating just that.

“It’s a welcome start to the year, and with my commitment to delivering for North Wales now formalised in my portfolio title, I will keep pushing to ensure that through further potential interventions, be it as part of the North Wales Growth bid or other funding and support avenues, this will be the first of many such positive developments here in 2019.”

Mark Diaper, associate director at Legat Owen, joint agents for the scheme with Cushman & Wakefield, Manchester, added: “The Welsh Government’s ability to provide funding to support the speculative development of these units will help further attract businesses to and help existing business grow in what is already a well-established location for the industrial sector.  The joint venture is made up of two highly respected developers and we look forward to seeing the scheme come forward.”
