Omega Warrington Ltd
Omega Warrington Ltd is a joint venture partnership between Miller Developments and The Royal Bank of Scotland – together with landowners the Homes and Communities Agency (formerly English Partnerships). The partnership was created in 2001 and selected to redevelop the former Bruntonwood Airbase. Omega Warrington Ltd fought off tough international competition to land this £1 billion, 30 year regeneration project.
Planning for what is to become Omega North and Omega South was submitted in 2003 and will see the site create thousands of new jobs and form a major expansion of Warrington. Planning consent was granted in 2006 for 1.6m sqft of distribution space in the North and 1.5m sqft of offices in the South.
A 200,000 sq ft distribution warehouse has been completed for Brakes, the grocery and fresh food suppliers.
A 153,500 sq ft state of the art parcel handling distribution depot completed for Hermes, the UK's leading consumer delivery specialist, including 1,486 sqm (16,000 sq ft) of office space, on an 18 acre plot.
A 700,000 sq ft regional logistics centre is under construction for the Travis Perkins Group, the UK’s largest supplier to the building and construction market. The new £35m logistics centre will supply Travis Perkins Group wholesale and retail outlets across the region, supporting around 450 jobs on site. Construction completion projected for Summer 2014 with operation planned for 2015.
A new 605,000sqft facility for Asda is under construction.
A further planning application submitted February 2014 for 2.1m sq ft of manufacturing and logistics space including detailed plans for a new access road to Junction 8 of the M62 plus a 35 acres "Green Heart" for wildlife preservation.
Omega isn’t just one of the largest projects in Britain; it’s also one of the most significant in terms of regeneration. Situated right in the heart of North West England, midway between Manchester and Liverpool, it lies adjacent to the M62, the region’s main east-west corridor, near to its junction with the M6, the main north-south route. Meriting its own motorway junction (Junction 8), which has already been installed, the Omega site will be linked to local labour supplies via major public transport improvements which are being funded by the development.
The proposals for Omega are fully supported by Warrington Borough Council.
