NEW OPERATORS SECURED FOR WINSFORD GATEWAY

Rula Developments has signed up two new occupiers for its Winsford Gateway scheme at Junction 18 of the M6.

Petrol filling station operator The Kay Group has acquired a 1.6-acre roadside plot at the entrance to Winsford Gateway.

Rula is developing a facility to include four BP pumps with EV charging points and bespoke HGV facilities to serve the industrial estate operators.  The new retail operation will be supplied by Londis and includes a Subway, Greggs, and Costa Express amenity to customers. A car valet service will also be available.

The company has also secured a deal with self-storage operator Rent A Space, which is taking 60,000 sq ft of space at Winsford Gateway.

The news follows Rula’s appointment to undertake a major expansion of the industrial led site on behalf of Build&Thrive, the partnership between Cheshire West & Chester Council and PSP.

Ben Ward, managing director at Rula Developments, said: “We are delighted to secure these two new operators at Winsford Gateway.  Having just completed works on a new main access road and site infrastructure we can now offer bespoke design and building opportunities for units from 20,000 sq ft to 60,000 sq ft for the amenity and business unit plots and up to 250,000 sq ft for industrial distribution.

“Winsford Gateway is now well placed to meet the fast-growing demand for well-located logistics space and we are able to start construction on site immediately with fast-track delivery options.”

Rula has already developed a 168,000 sq ft, £22m factory for Tiger Trailers on the estate.  With full planning consent in place to develop a further 30 acres, the developer has released plots for 18.5 acres industrial/distribution use, five acres for roadside/amenities and a further seven acres for smaller industrial/business uses.

Legat Owen Chartered Surveyors is appointed as sole agent to market Winsford Gateway.
