The planning documents submitted included a statement that it had been “prepared in support of a planning request for the construction of a new retail system at Whittle Avenue, Warrington”.
The document states that the new retail system consists of three individual units – Lidl, Costa Coffee and McDonalds.
There would also be a new parking layout, including parking areas for people with disabilities, parking areas for parents and children and charging areas for electric cars.
The plans would also include pedestrian and bicycle links to connect the commercial space to new residential developments to the north and south, as well as existing housing to the east of the proposed commercial site.
The offer states that the layout of the project was designed “in conjunction with the local authority to create a cohesive project that provides an active frontage on Whittle Avenue and the new R4 road.”
âThe main entrances to each unit will be constructed with glazing and canopies providing a contemporary and attractive focal point to each of the buildings and the site as a whole.
“All the materials and finishes chosen come together to create a positive and pleasant environment that will benefit the local community and at large.”
A decision on the plans has yet to be made by the council.
