Plans submitted to bring growth and jobs to Crewe at WestonM6

27.02.23 2 min read by Ryan Devlin

We’ve submitted a planning application to Cheshire East Council to bring forward WestonM6 – a new 1.3m sq ft highly-sustainable logistics and business park, just a stone’s throw from the M6 in Crewe that will supercharge growth and create thousands of new jobs.

As part of the ‘hybrid’ submission, we’re also seeking detailed approval for the first phase of regeneration, which will include three high-quality industrial buildings totalling approximately 750,000 sq ft. As part of the wider regeneration, we’ll deliver a range of amenities for the community, including landscaped nature areas, a 3km active walking trail and a wildlife ‘pocket’ park.

Spread out across 64 acres, the scheme will create up to 2,900 new jobs for the community, including 165 jobs during construction phase and generate an additional £3.4m in business rates.

Alan McBride, projects director, said:

At WestonM6, we’ve worked hard to design a sustainable place that complements the existing neighbourhood being created, unlocks vast areas of greenery, to promote a healthy lifestyle, but importantly attracts significant inward investment and meets the demand for new jobs in the town.”
As a business, we’re committed to creating vibrant places that leave a long-lasting positive legacy to benefit communities and at WestonM6 we know we’ll achieve just that and build a brighter future for all in Crewe.”

We’re bringing forward WestonM6 with landowners, The Witter Trust and the Co-Operative.
