A new office building could be constructed in Chester Business Park, a move that could see nearly 800 jobs created. A new document supporting the latest proposal from Chester Parkside notes that the economic benefits of the plan would include the creation of up to 790 new jobs, as well as construction jobs during the building phase.
According to the Chester Chronicle, the 47,600 sq/ft complex would face serviced offices in Regus House and join the likes of both national and international companies like M&S Money, MBNA, Tetra Pak, Myers Squibb and Bank of Americal Merrill Lynch.
Although it would be built on green belt land, the development is intended to be sustainable. Although some trees would have to be felled in order to make way for the building, a report has shown that the site would actually help support species of great crested newts. There are currently two newt mitigation ponds on the site and it’s unlikely that the new site would affect these.
Chester Business Park itself is a 175-acre business environment just one mile south of the city centre, which makes it perfect as a base for companies of all shapes and sizes. Use of the natural environment is maximised, with any buildings adhering strictly to a 15 per cent building footing and maximum height of 12 metres. It’s also home to several endangered species, including barn owls and water voles.
