Monthly Round Up December
It has been another busy few weeks for the team at NJL Consulting. As we canter towards Christmas we look back over the last few weeks.
Logistics Submission at Farington Hall
Last month, Nick Pleasant submitted a Reserved Matters application for the largest speculative logistics development in the North West. The application, made to South Ribble Council will deliver 555,000sqft in a single unit which if approved, will generate 1,375 jobs on site. The plans also include extensive ecological enhancements to the local area including alterations to the existing watercourse.
The application was made in concurrence to the Secretary of State’s decisions on several logistics scheme in the North West. You can read Nick’s overview and thoughts on the need for employment generating uses in the region here.
Approval of Reserved Matters at Pemberton Colliery
This month, NJL has secured Reserved Matters approval on behalf of Northstone for the development at the former Pemberton Colliery. The proposals will regenerate the vacant former colliery to provide 268 high quality homes, including affordable housing in an area of high housing need. The consent continues Northstone’s success in the north west and NJL looks forwards to working on further projects with the team.
The team has continued to work with Peel to negotiate design parameters for the Trafford Waters scheme. The Design Framework will set out the design rationale to be employed across the site as various parcels come forwards over the next 15 years. This work follows NJL’s involvement in the scheme which originally secured outline consent in 2018.
