Planning submitted for four units at Kingsway Business Park

Date published: 13 February 2024

Wilson Bowden Developments has submitted planning permission for four more units on a nine-acre plot of land at Kingsway Business Park.

The developer has submitted a planning application for 140,000 sq ft of industrial space off John Milne Avenue – ‘plot L’ – near Cleland McIver and Gemalto, including car parking and vehicular access.

Designed by DLA Architecture, the units would range in size from 16,000 sq ft to 61,000 sq ft and be similar in appearance to other units on the 140-hectare business park.

The plans follow a funding deal for two units on the adjacent plot J2, to the south of plot L.

The Kingsway Partnership is a joint venture involving Wilson Bowden Developments, Rochdale Development Agency, Rochdale Borough Council, and Homes England.

The park is already home to big names including Asda, JD Sports, Amazon, Danish Crown, E-on UK and Dachser.
