Home Bargains owner submits Liverpool expansion plans

Home Bargains

TJ Morris has submitted a detailed planning application to create a warehouse, vehicle maintenance unit, gym and sports facility at its Liverpool base to support continued expansion.

The discount retailer, which trades as Home Bargains, has earmarked an 8.4-acre site for the scheme.

The company has identified a vacant site on Axis Business Park between its recently completed warehouse and a tree-lined embankment next to the River Alt for the scheme. The site was previously used by United Utilities.

It is envisaged that the warehouse and vehicle maintenance unit would operate 24 hours per day, seven days per week. The gym and sports facility, which would be used by TJ Morris employees and their friends and family members, would open from 7am to midnight seven days per week.

The warehouse would measure 73,750 sq ft, while the gym and sports facility would cover 24,101 sq ft and the vehicle maintenance unit would require 18,115 sq ft. This means the total area of the buildings would be 115,966 sq ft.

Architectural and development consultancy AJA Architects has submitted a design and access statement as part of a detailed planning application to Liverpool City Council.

It said: "The scheme provides for the development of a site which has remained vacant for a number of years to meet TJ Morris' requirements to support their continued expansion and provide gym and sports facilities for staff."
