Widnes was once the UK chemical industry’s capital. As times have changed, this Merseyside town boasts huge amounts of formerly industrial land, which is ripe for redevelopment. Developers have already recognised the value present in this area, and it has begun to attract investment from supermarkets and shopping outlets.
Legend has acquired 140 acres of predominantly brownfield industrial land adjacent to the River Mersey. Our Widnes Wharf development is an unprecedented opportunity for us to transform disused land into something sustainable that will provide for the area’s future.
Our ground-breaking mixed industrial and commercial Widnes Wharf project will be a cutting-edge new clean energy development, and a game changer for the North West.
Widnes Wharf will introduce a waste-to-energy plant, providing electricity to the surrounding homes and businesses through the treatment and processing of non-renewable waste. Subsequent possibilities being considered for the site include new factories and warehouses.
Not only will the development position Widnes as a leading light in sustainable energy, the jobs provided and the investment attracted, both during and after construction, will transform the local economy and give new life to this former industrial powerhouse.
