Lincoln property developer, Stirlin, has begun construction on a new business park in Gainsborough.
Following planning approval from West Lindsey District Council, work i underway on the first phase of the 1.3 acre development: Willoughton Place.
Providing 25,000 sq ft of employment space, Willoughton Place, on Foxby Lane will create around 50 new jobs in the area.
Phase one will provide three hybrid office and warehouse units, each measuring 2,000 sq ft and comprising an electric sectional door, personnel door, ground floor warehouse, first floor office, toilet facilities and allocated parking.
Tony Lawton, managing director of Stirlin, says: “We’re excited to begin construction on Willoughton Place. This well-positioned commercial development in Gainsborough has already attracted a great deal of attention, with one of the three units sold subject to contract. Due to this level of interest that we’ve received for the site, we will soon be announcing details on the second phase.
“With the significant shortage of modern commercial properties in the area, we are pleased to be able to provide further new employment space to support the growth of the local business base.”
Councillor Colin Davie, Executive Councillor for Economy at Lincolnshire County council, said: “The development of the new business park is a great and substantial addition to Gainsborough. Building on and enhancing the commercial offer that is already in place nearby, including our own business centre Mercury House, the land will importantly support businesses to start-up, re-locate and grow.”
Groundworks are currently underway on the site, with completion expected on the first phase in Q1 2022.
