As you are aware there are proposals to construct two huge warehouses on the Green Belt in Haydock totalling 1.4 million square feet, far larger than the Sainsbury’s Distribution Centre in Millfield Lane. The proposal is that the largest building will be 22 metres (over 72 feet) high, twice the height of Haydock Tesco.
The site is just off the East Lancashire Road to the left of Haydock Lane when going up towards Millfield Lane and is in close proximity to houses in Slag Lane, Liverpool Road, Millfield Lane, Great Delph and Springfield Park.
A public footpath crosses the site from Haydock Lane to Liverpool Road and this links into the Garswood Loop Walk, promoted by St Helens MBC.
The whole of the area is farmland and views from the footpath and from Liverpool Road are quite spectacular. All of this will be lost if the development is granted planning permission.
The planning application has now been lodged with the Council and can be seen on the St Helens Council Website – www.sthelens.gov.uk Search for Planning and Building Control. The application reference is P/2016/0608/HYBR or search for Florida Farm North.
Your objection can be by letter or email or via the Council webpage as detailed above. If you send an email you must give your full name and address at the end of the email.
It has been recommended to us that you post your letters.
The Planning Officer dealing with this application is Alan Kilroe, - 01744 676177
Address: St Helens Council, Town Planning, Town Hall, St Helens, WA10 1HP
