Major housing scheme for Cheshire site unveiled

by on September 17, 2015

Proposals for more than 1,000 new homes have been submitted for a site in Cheshire dubbed as “one of the North West’s largest construction projects”.

A hotel, care home, shops and restaurants are also proposed for the southern sector of Omega site near the M62 at Burtonwood. The Omega project is already home to distribution warehouses and has reportedly created 2,000 jobs.

The land at the former RAF Burtonwood airbase has been labelled “the largest employment site in Western Europe” by Warrington Borough Council.

Planning permission has already been granted for a new primary school on the site, whilst government funding has been committed for improvements to Junction 8 of the M62.

The developer behind the scheme is Omega Warrington Ltd, a joint venture between Miller Developments and KUC Properties Ltd, in partnership with landowner the Homes and Communities Agency and supported by Warrington Borough Council and the Cheshire and Warrington LEP.

Councillor Terry O’Neill, leader of Warrington Borough Council said: “The continued development of Omega is a key priority in our ambitious growth agenda. Work is already underway on-site on the construction of a new primary school, Barrow Hall, which will open in September 2016 and this planning application brings much needed housing to the town.
