Welcome to the Meridian 6 Wigan consultation website.

This website provides information on development plans being brought forward by Glenbrook to expand South Lancashire Industrial Estate in Wigan to create up to 1,200 jobs.

There are significant socio-economic benefits of this scheme including;

  • Circa £42m in construction spend, generating £17m gross of GVA at Wigan level and £18.8m for the wider area
  • Initial investment of £70 million into Wigan, generating approx. £46.8m of net additional GVA annually
  • Fully occupied scheme would generate a £1.2m annual tax income for the Council.

The proposals have evolved following feedback received from stakeholders, statutory consultees and the public during the pre-application consultation undertaken by the project team. The key changes are summarised below;

  • Lower building heights restricted to the eastern side of the site with potential for slightly taller buildings in the central and western area
  • Widening of the northern landscape buffer to between 28m and 42m to improve planting, visual screening and biodiversity mitigation
  • The north eastern landscape buffer has also been reprofiled to a single graded bank over an existing ditch, that would be culverted - previously the ditch was retained and the landscape bund would have been much smaller
  • Widening of the eastern landscape buffer by the retained pedestrian access, to improve visual screening and biodiversity mitigation
  • New pond adjacent to Bolton Road reengineered to be permanently wet to improve biodiversity mitigation and amenity value (previously designed as a dry basin that would hold water following heavy rainfall)
