Lincolnshire property developer and investor Castle Group has completed the sixth and final phase of Riverside Enterprise Park in Saxilby.

More than 200 local jobs have been created at the development, which comprises a mix of office space and forty warehouse, industrial and retail units ranging in size from 2,000-5,000 sq ft.

Initial work on the scheme began in 2015. The sixth phase, delivered by Castle and Lincoln developer Stirlin, consists of five high-specification warehouses.

Occupiers at Riverside Enterprise Park include O’Boyles, Agrigem and Terravesta.

George Lockwood, director of Castle Group, said: “The completion of the Riverside Enterprise Park is great news for the local area. Beyond the significant investment that was put into this site during its construction phase, the enterprise park has now attracted new businesses to the region, each contributing to the Lincolnshire economy and now supporting over 200 jobs.”

James Kirby, owner of Stirlin Developments, said: “Riverside Enterprise Park presents an attractive option for businesses looking for warehousing, office and retail space. The 7.6-acre development is situated just three miles from the Lincoln Bypass and five miles from Lincoln City Centre, providing excellent transport links. With the completion of Phase 6, we have developed over 70,000 sq ft of high-quality employment space on Riverside Enterprise Park, which has brought a great deal of business to the area.”

Sally Grindrod-Smith, director of planning, regeneration and communities at West Lindsey District Council, added: “It is an exciting time for the commercial and economic growth of the area. Projects such as this often spark a catalyst for further development, which bring with it investment and much needed employment opportunities.”
