A MIDDLEWICH firm is looking to secure the green light for a new industrial unit within its grounds.

Hough Construction, in Brooks Lane, has lodged a planning application with Cheshire East Council for the new unit on to be built on an existing builders yard.

The building, which would have 112sq m of floorspace, would be used for storage and office space.

Three new car parking spaces would be provided, and no hazardous material would be kept at the premises.

CEC is accepting comments on the plans until Thursday, August 13.
