Extending to a total of 134 acres, Symmetry Park, Wigan has the capacity to deliver up to 1,442,000 sq ft of logistics floor space. Situated at J25 of the M6 motorway, the site provides prominence for occupiers and excellent transport links to the national motorway and trunk road network.
A hybrid planning application was submitted to Wigan Council in August 2018, seeking detailed planning permission for 300,000 sq ft across two units (Unit 1 190,000 sq ft and Unit 2 110,000 sq ft), and outline permission for a further 1,142,000 sq ft. The hybrid application was made in response to the site’s draft allocation for employment development in the Greater Manchester Spatial Framework (GMSF) and in response to Wigan Councils identified employment land requirements, as set out in their Employment Land Position Statement (April 2018).
Resolution to grant secured at committee in January 2020. Secretary of State approval was forthcoming June 2021.
