Industrious moves ahead with Peel Mills demolition

Specialist industrial and warehouse property owner Industrious, is to move ahead with demolition of the remaining former mill buildings at Peel Industrial Estate in the north west town of Bury. 

MAZE Planning Solutions Maze Planning Solutions secured approval to the demolition this week.

Demolition, being undertaken by Andrew Connolly Demolition, will make available a large area for future provision of modern industrial buildings, adding to those on the existing estate. 
  
Industrious owns and manages approximately 1250 industrial units and warehouses on 85 estates across the UK, totalling more than 7 million sq.ft.  Nolan Redshaw Chartered Surveyors is advising on lettings.  

Medical Practice Approved for Bury

Indigo Healthcare will be bringing its private primary health care services to Bury following approval earlier this week of its proposals to take occupation of Hilton House. The town centre building, located on Irwell Street next to Castle Leisure Centre, had been empty for several months following the departure of the Council's Children's Services team.

Indigo is relocating from the neighbouring borough of Rossendale and expects to create a number of new jobs when the practice is established in its new home.

MAZE Planning Solutions handled the planning application for change of use of the building, assisted by FuZED Architecture + Design.

Concert Events Approved at Globe Arena


Morecambe Football Club's plans for music concerts at its Globe Arena stadium have been approved today by Lancaster City Council's planning committee.

The permission comes after 9 months of negotiation and discussion led by MAZE Planning Solutions, required to overcome a wide range of concerns about noise, traffic and event management raised by the local authority, police and Lancashire County Council.

Morecambe FC will be allowed to hold three days of live music events each year, with the potential to attract up to 12,000 music fans each day. It's likely the event will take the form of a festival spanning 2 or 3 consecutive days during the closed football season so full use can be made of the stadium

Most Planning Committee Members were keen to enable an event to be held to capture tourism benefits for the resort, balancing that against the need to protect the amenity of local residents.  A temporary planning permission has been given, which allows the Football Club's commitment to good working practices for event management and noise control to be demonstrated.

MAZE led the planning process, assisted by the Manchester office of Hepworth Acoustics, which provided specialist noise modelling expertise.
