CBRE Launches 430-Acre Cheshire Portfolio

The Cheshire Portfolio presents a significant opportunity to deliver a major employment development with excellent connectivity to the M6 corridor. Previously identified as potential employment sites in the draft Local Plan, the removal of HS2 safeguarding has made these lands viable again. 

CBRE’s Land Development and Industrial teams in Manchester have launched 430 acres of strategic land in Northwich, Cheshire to market on behalf of NPL Group.  The Cheshire Portfolio comprises four significant sites offering huge potential to promote an employment development of regional importance within a single consolidated ownership.

Collectively, the Cheshire portfolio presents an unparalleled opportunity to deliver a significant employment development of regional importance with excellent connectivity to the M6 corridor via the A556.  Large tracts of the landholding were previously identified as employment allocations in the draft Local Plan but were removed as a result of safeguarding for HS2.  The removal of HS2 safeguarding returns this land as a viable and deliverable strategic opportunity.

Part of the portfolio also includes a site to the north of Lostock Gralam with potential for a residential extension of the existing settlement and is in close proximity to the local train station.

Kieran McLaughlin, Senior Director, CBRE commented;

“This is a landmark and rare opportunity to purchase landholding of this scale and potential and we are inviting offers for either individual sites or on a portfolio basis.  With the removal of HS2 safeguarding coupled with the Local Authority’s announcement to undertake a Local Plan review, this signals a key opening for acquisition and development of these sites.”
