Direct Access to Junction 44 of the M6 Motorway North and South

Kingmoor Park Wrexham

PLANS have been unveiled for a land development project which could bring a jobs boom to Wrexham.

The owners of Kingmoor Park on the town's industrial estate say the proposals could help create 150 jobs and safeguard a further 450.

Tony Goddard, the chief executive of Kingmoor Park Properties, outlined details of the scheme, which incorporates more than one million sq ft.

Under the plans there would be:-

  • A 511,656 sq ft warehouse to accommodate an increase in business activity for TDG which already occupy premises next door.
  • About 82,100 sq ft of small scale industrial accommodation with units suitable for start up businesses.
  • Extensive landscaping proposals, retaining more than 21 hectares of the 39 hectare site as open land.
  • New access road, road markings and footways to improve the existing junctions with Bryn Lane.
  • A separate warehouse of 415,000 sq ft for an existing local company for expansion purposes.

Mr Goddard said: "We bought this site in 2003 when it was in a run-down state and set about making it a viable option for businesses to consider as a location. We had taken the same approach with our flagship industrial estate in Carlisle, the 400 acre Kingmoor Park. This site was also run-down and had previously been a Ministry of Defence storage site. We now have more than 1,500 employees working there and 150 tenants including some of the biggest names in business in the country. Our aim is to repeat this process in Wrexham."

Mr Goddard said the area of land in Wrexham had already been designated for employment use and the scheme is specifically designed for two major occupiers for which there are no other suitable sites in the town.

"It will provide a major investment, and a massive vote of confidence in Wrexham Industrial Estate. Our scheme has been carefully designed so that landscaping is also a key factor in the proposals," he added

"Wherever possible we have retained existing trees, hedgerows and ponds and have introduced new areas of woodland and six additional ponds which will maximise the wildlife opportunities on the site and minimise any impacts."

Kingmoor Park Wrexham is located upon the established Wrexham Industrial Estate approximately 5 miles to the east of Wrexham Town Centre.Access to Wrexham by-pass provides fast links to the A483 Wrexham/Chester Link Road and the motorway network.

Wrexham Industrial Estate at 550 hectares is the largest industrial estate in Wales, the  second largest in the UK after Trafford Park in Manchester and among the largest in Europe. Companies such as JCB, Calypso, Kellogg's, Hoya Lens (UK) Ltd and Tetra Pak Ltd are located on the estate. Meanwhile many other major companies have manufacturing, research or office bases in and around the town including Sharp, Brother, Cytec Industries etc. International pharmaceutical and chemical companies are also well represented including Flexsys and Wockhardt.
