Roundhouse Properties submits plans for £10m commercial development in Blackburn

Roundhouse Properties has submitted a planning application to create a new £10m commercial development in Blackburn.

The development would create 68 new commercial units on a 1.56-hectare site off Haslingden Road close to Junction 5 of the M65. The units will offer a total of 24,000 sq ft of commercial space for office, industrial, storage and distribution uses.

The scheme will continue the roll out of Roundhouse’s popular Momentum business centre concept which provides flexible spaces to support growing SMEs.

It is the company’s fourth Momentum project and follows previous developments in Preston and Buckshaw Village, near Chorley. Momentum offers occupiers the opportunity to rent, buy or rent to buy.

Jeremy Lefton, director of Roundhouse Properties, said: “Our Momentum Business Centres have proved hugely successful because they offer business owners that all-important flexibility to support them on their business journey.

“These units will provide a fantastic location for businesses right next to the M65 in a well-established commercial area, creating new jobs and economic activity. We’re excited to submit this planning application and hope to be on site before the end of the year.”

The 68 single-storey commercial units will be spread across 12 buildings. Aimed primarily at small businesses and start-ups, the flexible design enables owners and occupiers to take more than one unit and add a mezzanine level to a create a larger space to suit their specific needs.

The development will include 193 parking spaces, motorcycle parking and cycle storage. Vehicle and pedestrian access will be off Haslingden Road.

The site, which is designated for employment use by Blackburn with Darwen Council, lies adjacent to EG Group’s Waterside headquarters next to Guide reservoir and is also opposite the sprawling Shadsworth Business Park.

Danny Pinkus at Pinkus & Co and Neil Weaver of Taylor Weaver have been appointed as joint agents for the development. The scheme was designed by Evolve Architectural Design. De Pol Associates are acting as planning consultant.

Subject to planning consent, Roundhouse hopes to be able to start work on the development towards the end of summer with phase one being made available in early 2022.
