Thank you for visiting our Botany Bay Business Park Consultation website. 

Our consultation period has now concluded, we would like thank everyone for their feedback and comments. We will look at all the feedback and make any necessary amendments before submitting the application.  


FI Real Estate Management (FIREM) is pleased to present its ideas for the Botany Bay Business Park project for the Botany Bay site through this online exhibition and related community consultation event.

We have been developing our plans for the Business Park since 2019 and the proposed layout and related designs we present through this on-line exhibition have been prepared by us with the input of our professional team since then right up to the present day.

We believe we have come up with an exciting development initiative and vibrant layout and design that will enhance the quality of the site and boost the employment sector of Chorley and in a way that will create new jobs, attract further investment in the area and town and deliver on several key economic development objectives.

Our concept is to combine an employment and commercial uses development in a contemporary way and in a way that will enable the retention of the former Botany Bay Mill Building which will be used for complementary uses.

We hope that, once complete, the development will be seen as an important, valuable, forward thinking landmark project to be proud of.

The Proposal

The proposal is for the development of a business park made up of 12 main blocks of development (Blocks A – L) which will comprise a number of different sized units for employment and commercial uses.

The blocks of development will be used for light and general industry and warehousing and commercial uses in the form of retail, cafes and food and drink uses although the vast majority of the proposed floorspace is for light and general industry and warehousing – only a small proportion of the overall floorspace is envisaged to be occupied by commercial operators.

Overall, the proposal will deliver:

  • Approximately 30,201 sqm (GIA) of total floorspace.
  • Approximately 29,536 sq m (GIA) of employment floorspace.
  • Approximately 665 sq m (GIA) of commercial floorspace.

The proposal will be accessed through the existing access road into site off the existing roundabout on the A674.

Further details of the development are provided on later boards.
