People looking for the best storage Shrewsbury has to offer will be pleased to hear that Chester Business Park has had a boost.
The local business park could be set to expand by 111,406 sqft of office space, with three large open plan offices planned, along with 208 parking spaces for the people who may work there. The plans would unite the three buildings already at the business park Parkside One, Parkside Three and Wrexham Road Farm, into a single unit.
Unfortunately, this building is due to take place on green belt land around Chester, which has received some opposition from local people who don’t agree with building taking place there.
However, as always in the case with new building plans the proposals have to go before the local council which will decide whether or not building works, and the expansion of the business park can go ahead, Insider Media reported.
It is hoped that the promise of nearly 800 jobs which could be created by the new building work will mean the plans go ahead. A report has been prepared stating that the building work should go ahead, and if it doesn’t the matter could be referred back to Government.
There are woodlands at the site which the new proposals would leave alone, which may help the company get its permission to go ahead and build when the proposals are presented to council bosses on 5 September.
Chester Business Park is currently home to a a number of big companies including MBNA, M&S Bank, GBG, Tetrapak, Bristol-Myers Squibb and Regus which have all started working in the local area in recent years.
