400 jobs on the cards in Lincolnshire as major employment site plans submitted

More than 400 new Lincolnshire jobs will be one step nearer if planners give the go-ahead for work to start on a major employment site near Lincoln.

Stirlin Developments Ltd is seeking outline planning permission from West Lindsey District Council to develop the 20-acre Enterprise West Lindsey site, near Saxilby – which could create new office, research and development, general industrial and distribution jobs.

Stirlin has partnered with Castle Square Securities to deliver the project and Lincoln-based chartered surveyor Banks Long & Co will be marketing opportunities on the site.

Stirlin Managing Director James Kirby said: “This exciting project has the potential to accommodate more than 200,000 sq ft of new commercial space and support over 400 jobs and it will help to support the continued growth of the economy in Greater Lincoln.

“Our planning application seeks consent to develop the land and approve the means of access and drainage. It is hoped that planning permission will be in place by mid-summer, enabling site servicing works to start later this year.”

“The site can accommodate a broad range of requirements and meet the needs of businesses looking for 3,000 sq ft to 40,000 sq ft of accommodation. It will offer occupiers freehold and leasehold buildings, including light industrial, hybrid and office units,” said Mr Kirby.

Banks Long & Co Associate Lewis Cove said the proposed development area will act as an expansion of the existing Riverside Enterprise Park, Allen’s Business Park and Saxilby Enterprise Park employment areas at Saxilby and will potentially provide a further 10 years of extra building in the area.
