PLANS have been drawn up to turn a unit at the Haydock Industrial Estate into use as a storage warehouse.

Howden Jointery Ltd have submitted plans for the premises 2 Pye Close, Haydock.

The plans say Howden operates as a "depot to serve small builders within a geographical catchment area of the depot concerned".

Within each depot they store "rigid and self-assembly kitchens and associated accessories and joinery products".

Plans say "at least eight full time jobs" will be created within these premises once the use has been established, with scope for additional employment as well as 'hidden' employment creation in the local area".

The proposed depot would be open from 7.30am to 6pm on Mondays to Fridays and 7.30am to 1pm on Saturdays.
