Canmoor gains planning consent for Westway site

Commercial developer and asset manager, Canmoor, has secured planning consent from Renfrewshire Council to develop a new speculative industrial space on a 13-acre site at Westway, next to Glasgow Airport.

The £25m development will consist of two high-quality industrial and warehouse units of 86,630 sq ft and 202,230 sq ft — to be known as ‘Westway 90’ and ‘Westway 200’ respectively — and the larger unit will be capable of being split into two units.

The development will provide quick and direct access from Westway to Junction 28 of the M8, via the recently opened Barnwell Street Bridge, as well as to Glasgow Airport, and across the Advanced Manufacturing Innovation District Scotland (AMIDS).

The units will be designed to a high specification, of steel portal frame construction, with eaves heights of 12.5m, featuring ample dock leveller loading bays and high-quality offices.

Dedicated car and HGV parking is also included, with an extensive yard of up to 50 metres deep.

Each unit will be designed as all-electric, targeting BREEAM ‘Excellent’ and EPC ratings of A — further green credentials include electric car charging points, provision for PV panels and air source heat pumps.

A preferred main contractor has been identified and the development is expected to commence in July, with the units being available for occupation in Q4 2024.

Gregor King, asset manager of Westway at Canmoor, said: “We are committed to continually improving the standard of accommodation at Westway, through ongoing investment we firmly believe the development of this sustainable industrial/logistics space will be very well-received in the Scottish market.

“The connectivity, including convenient access to Glasgow Airport and the M8, further adds to its appeal.

“With this outlook, exciting times lie ahead as Canmoor continues its ongoing investments.”

Gavin Newlands, MP for Paisley and Renfrewshire North, added: "Having the capacity to provide additional quality industrial and logistics space is incredibly positive news for Renfrewshire and the wider west of Scotland region.

“This development will attract more businesses to establish their presence here, fostering job creation in the process."
