Five-storey car park for business park


A MULTI-storey car park with room for more than 1,000 cars and 12 motor cycles will be built on the Birchwood Park business estate following the granting of planning consent.
Members of Warrington’s development management committee gave the scheme the green light after hearing that most of the new parking places would replace existing ones which are to be closed to enable other development to take place.
At present there are 880 parking spaces, all at ground level. After the multi-storey car park is build, the total number of spaces will increase by 127.
The five-storey building will be buildt on the site of an existing surface car park accesed via Reynolds Avenue or Griffith Avenue..
Birchwood Town Council did not oppose the development, but raised concerns about speeding motorists within the business park.
The committee was told there were varying speed limits signed on the estate, 5mph, 10mph and 20mph, depending on the type of road.
The multi-storey car park will not include spaces for the disabled as individual office buildings – including those not yet built – are required to have disabled parking in close proximity.
A report considered by the committee said there were varying speed limits on the estate, 5mph, 10mph and 20mph, depending on the type of road. All have corresponding signage.
