Strategic Location


SAT NAV: CH5 2RD

Strategically located at Deeside, North Wales, adjacent to the border with England, this prime gateway site provides immediate access to Junction 16 of the M56, which in turn provides rapid access to the North West’s comprehensive regional and national motorway network.

The Airfields also benefits from ready access to the key strategic transportation route from Ireland to Continental Europe and beyond, via the A55 / M56 / M62 roads and the ports of Holyhead, Immingham and Amsterdam.

The Site


Located at the heart the Deeside Enterprise Zone, the Airfields extends to 140 acres, with the benefit of outline planning permission for B2/B8 and commercial/roadside uses.

The site has been master-planned utilising the best design principles to create a sustainable business community and can accommodate industrial occupiers in units from 50,000 sq ft up to 1,000,000 sq ft.

This is unique both in the context of North Wales and the adjacent North West region of England. The site will also support over 20 acres of roadside, automotive, retail and leisure uses.
