CADDICK LAND

PLANNING SUBMITTED FOR ASHTON PARK

Caddick have submitted plans for Ashton Park, a new sustainable commercial development in Ashton-in-Makerfield, Wigan. The plans have the capacity to support about 400 jobs during construction, and approximately 700 well-paid and skilled jobs once operational.

The outline planning application for Ashton Park will deliver up to 360,000 sq ft of commercial development, providing an extension to the well-occupied South Lancashire Industrial Estate.

Ashton Park will incorporate sustainable logistics accommodation targeting a BREEAM Excellent rating. It will feature EV charging facilities, a solar panel ready roof, battery storage areas, and air source heat pumps, alongside facilities to support sustainable travel to the site, such as cycle storage, showers, and drying rooms.

Ashton Park will predominantly provide manufacturing and logistics employment, offering higher than average salaries compared with other sectors.

Tom Park from Caddick Developments said: “This application gives us the opportunity to bring forward much needed logistics space to a well established but currently undersupplied, M6 location, whilst reflecting our commitment to creating best-in-class sustainable developments.

“Our proposals will also contribute ¬£46.2m to the local economy a year, boosting economic growth in this area, and creating better opportunities for residents in Ashton-in-Makerfield and across Wigan.”
