OMEGA WEST PLANNING CONSENT

Date: 20 June 2022

Planning permission has been granted for two new warehouses in St Helens borough as part of a three-phase development at Omega West, paving the way for more than 1,000 jobs.

Reserved matters applications have been given the green light by St Helens Borough Council’s planning committee for the erection of units two and three. Between them, they have the potential to create about 1,500 jobs – with end users confirmed for both sites.

Unit two – 308,905 sq ft in size – will be located behind unit one, comprising of the main logistics warehouse, including a two-storey office for administration and welfare facilities, as well as a transport office in the yard to control vehicle and stock movements. Unit three – 505,409 sq ft in size – will be located to the south east of unit two.

Work is also underway on unit one which will be occupied by Liverpool-based firm, Home Bargains, following approval from secretary of state for levelling up, housing and communities, Michael Gove.

Cllr Richard McCauley, St Helens Borough Council’s cabinet member for regeneration and planning, said: “With so much happening now in the way of regeneration projects like Omega West, Parkside, Glass Futures and the transformation of our town centres to name a few, these are really exciting times for the borough.

 

We promised sustainable inclusive growth with new jobs and that’s exactly what we’re delivering.”

Work on units two and three is due to start later this year, with Home Bargains distribution centre expected to be in operation by 2024.
