Parkside approval by Secretary of State
This morning the Secretary of State agreed with the The Planning Inspectorate decision to grant #planningpermission for over 92,000sqm of employment at #Parkside in Newton-le-Willows, St Helens.
Spawforths have worked on this project for many years and are so pleased for our client, Langtree, with this success.
The development, which will provide 1,330 #newjobs when fully complete as a major #logisticshub, would add more than £80m a year to the St Helens Council #economy and provide £2.2m a year in business rates to support local services. It includes a £38m #linkroad to the #M6.
John Downes, chairman of Parkside Regeneration, said: “It’s been a long road, but we got there.
“I’m delighted that the Secretary of State saw as clearly as we did Parkside’s potential for transformational change and the contribution it will make to re-balancing the borough’s economy.
“Work starts today on what we need to do to get spades in the ground. There’ll be lots going on behind the scenes that people won’t see, but we’ve already pushed the ‘go’ button.”
