Total Developments has been granted planning consent to develop 165,000sq ft of industrial accommodation off University Way in Crewe.

Cheshire East Council has given the developer approval to construct five new-build units ranging in size from 15,00q ft up to 45,000sq ft on the 9.3-acre site.

Pioneer Design and Build has been appointed as main contractor to deliver the first phase which will see the development of 120,000sq ft with the remaining 45,000sq ft to be brought forward shortly afterwards subject to demand.

Ed Chantler, director at Total Developments, said: “Our decision to develop units of varying sizes is purely demand-led. Our next door development at Orion Park has gone very well. We have extensive experience in Crewe and it continues to be an attractive location for us. Our latest scheme will create new jobs and inject further investment into the local economy.”

Matt Pochin, director at acting agent Legat Owen, continued: “Crewe is in desperate need of modern, high quality industrial units under 50,000sq ft. We have received incredibly high level of interest in this scheme and already have terms agreed for one pre-sale and one pre-let. With practical completion scheduled for spring 2018, we expect all of these units to be taken.”
