The Asda development taking shape on Omega

ANOTHER new occupier has been confirmed for Omega with hundreds more jobs promised for the business park.

Omega Warrington Ltd (OWL) has put in a planning application for a six hectare plot on Omega South.

The logistics business will be based at the north west corner of the site and will include warehouse space plus a two storey office development.

The new premises will sit within ‘Zone 7’, the section of Omega South granted ‘outline’ planning consent in May.

If permission is granted, it would be the second business to open on the site with the Asda warehouse now well under way.

It is due to open on the former RAF Burtonwood site next year.

Skyline Drive, currently under construction for Asda, will be extended out to Omega Boulevard and will be completed to tie in with the new building.

A decision is expected in the new few months.

Is the plan for Omega to still look like this?

Wow looking at the old artists impression I think the council has well and truly sold out to big corporations building sheds. It's a shame because local business's have had there noses well and truly pushed out. I'm pretty sure if plots the size of what was shown originally was available singularly , local business's would buy off plan.

So what Warrington is essentially becoming is a feeder town for warehouse operatives, treated like gps tagged hamsters in massive soulless rat runs, picking and packing like drones.... So much the Omega 'vision'..... All this will generate is cheap manual labour for massive faceless corporations.

Seems wrong that they can release an artists impression based upon a scene from Buck Rodgers to get everyone enthused and the whole thing signed off..then they rip up all that habitat and stick massive metal boxes and hundreds of HGV lorries on there. Surely planning permission for this development was influenced by the plans and designs submitted at the time.

Im all for Omega if it brings jobs and investment to the town but unless the road infrastructure is improved the already over crowded motorway and ajoining routes will just grind to a standstill even more.

Already I note Hermes trucks leaving the M6 at junction 22, cutting down the A49 to the M62 at B&Q and then rejoining the motorway there to travel 1 junction rather than using the M6 to M62 junction at Croft. This is because the M6 just doesnt move from 22 to 21a southbound on a morning with the sheer volume of traffic trying to get on the 62.
No doubt Asda vehicles will do the same.
