Commercial real estate investor and developer, Firethorn Trust, has secured planning permission to regenerate a brownfield site in Ellesmere Port, Cheshire.
Firethorn acquired the 42.5-acre site from Peel Ports Group in November 2020. Planning approval has now been granted for Link Logistics Park, which will provide up to 700,000 sq. ft. of modern logistics accommodation, creating approximately 800 jobs for the local region.
As groundworks at the speculative scheme near completion, construction is due to commence on site in January 2022, with delivery expected within 10 months by Q4 2022.
Paul Martin, Development Director at Firethorn Trust, said: “Link Logistics Park is a hugely exciting addition to our expanding portfolio. We are continuing to work closely with the local council to ensure the swift delivery of a high-quality scheme that will bring significant and long-lasting economic benefits to the wider region.”
