St. Modwen has submitted a planning application for the development of Chamberhall Business Park in Bury.
Plans submitted by the expert developer and regeneration specialist to Bury Council outline the overall strategy for the site and details the delivery of the first 130,000 sq ft phase of the business park.
Located on a 17-acre site off the A56 Peel Way the proposed first phase will see the development of modern business units ranging from 2,500 to 24,000 sq ft, with the ability to combine units.
Chamberhall Business Park will see units positioned in three terraces off an attractive central boulevard, along with two larger detached and self-contained units and a serviced development plot capable of accommodating bespoke and design and build enquiries.
The site, which is north of the town centre and is close to the motorway network and Metrolink, has been allocated by the Council for employment for a number of years.
Submission of the application is the next stage of the delivery of Chamberhall Business Park, following St. Modwen’s selection as development partner by the Council and the recent signing of the development agreement.
David Nuttall, Senior Development Manager at St. Modwen, said: “The submission of this planning application is the culmination of the significant investment we have made to date on Chamberhall Business Park.
“The Development Agreement was only recently completed so we believe that making this application so quickly thereafter is a signal of our intention to make Chamberhall Business Park happen.
“The scheme we are proposing will deliver a new high quality business destination in Bury and we are encouraged by the feedback we have already had from local occupiers.”
Councillor Rishi Shori, leader of Bury Council, said: “We are fully committed to ensuring that businesses can flourish in Bury, creating jobs and bringing investment into our borough. We have embarked on a number of exciting regeneration schemes and there are many more to come, as we deliver growth and ensure that Bury continues to prosper.”
Chamberhall Business Park is seen as a strategically important development opportunity and is highlighted within the Bury But Better – Vision and Development strategy, due to its location and connectivity. It also forms part of the Association of Greater Manchester Authorities’ investment pipeline.
