Our Joint Venture
Commercial developer Langtree and St Helens Borough Council have come together, as Parkside Regeneration LLP, to regenerate the former Parkside Colliery in Newton-le-Willows.
Our unique joint venture combines an outstanding commercial track record with a genuine commitment to maximising the social and economic gains for local people from this transformative project.
Jobs, investment, rateable income, training contracts, work placements and a commitment to using as many local suppliers as possible will deliver a step-change in our local economy and local communities.
Our focus is on attracting blue-chip companies that offer the very best training, terms and career prospects to deliver long-term change and improvement. All housed in a development that sets the bar for sustainable design and construction.
Langtree is one of the region’s leading industrial and commercial property development companies, with a first class reputation for its partnership and joint venture working.
The company’s chief executive began his career as a 16 year-old down the pit at Parkside and he has a passionate commitment to ensuring local people – and in particular, school-leavers – benefit from the wide-ranging careers that will be offered by the site’s occupiers.
Langtree owns and manages a substantial portfolio of 40 sites across the north west, midlands and Yorkshire totaling 3.2m square feet with some 600+ tenants. A further 4.5m square feet of space is in the planning system, helping create and sustain thousands more jobs for the north west and UK.
