Wain Estates’ Investment in New Enterprise Park

Wain Estates’ Investment in New Enterprise Park

19th May, 2022

Wain Estates has submitted detailed plans for a landmark new Enterprise Park as part of its vast Carrington Estate regeneration project in Greater Manchester.

The plans would deliver 268,000 sq ft of employment space across ten state-of-the-art buildings, all targeting net zero carbon ready, in one of the North West’s most accessible locations.

Units will range from 5,000 sq ft to 56,000 sq ft making them attractive to a range of occupiers and uses.

Wain Estates Development Director, Jack Brister, said: "Carrington Enterprise Park is the next phase of our strategic, long term investment to transform the 1,665 acre Carrington Estate into a series of new, well connected residential neighbourhoods and employment centres.

"It will provide a range of units suitable for a mix of occupiers that will foster business growth and development and help create new jobs."

The Carrington Estate currently has permission for 597 residential dwellings, circa 1m sq ft of employment (B1,B2,B8), 13,000 sq ft of retail and more than 3ha’s of public open space.

The Enterprise Park will sit on a 19 acre site accessed off Manchester Road with easy connectivity to the region’s motorway network and is close to rail links. Wain Estates is also working to improve sustainable transport across the Estate with a network of new or improved cycling and walking routes connecting key locations and developments. The site will also provide electric vehicle charging points and PV panels to provide power.

Jack added: "The Enterprise Park will serve the needs of modern commerce and the detailed application for this significant project is an important milestone in the delivery of the Carrington vision.

"If plans are approved we anticipate work starting on site in September 2022 with the first buildings in place by January 2023."
