The Site

 

symmetry park Wigan will be located to the south of Winstanley between Junction 25 of the M6 and the A49 Warrington Road. The site is currently agricultural land (Cranberry Ley Farm), although it was a former colliery with open cast mining continuing up to the early 1980s.

While it is within the Green Belt, the site has been identified in the Greater Manchester Spatial Framework (GMSF) as part of a proposed employment site allocation. This site is considered suitable for logistics as it has direct access to the M6 Junction 25 slip road, meaning vehicles do not need to pass through residential areas.
