Construction starts on additional employment space at Gainsborough business park

Lincoln-based property developer, Stirlin, has commenced construction on two new phases of its business park, Stirlin Place.

Stirlin Place is a one-acre commercial development, situated on the Foxby Lane Business Park in Gainsborough.

After seeing its potential, Stirlin secured the plot of land from Lincolnshire County Council in 2019 and received planning consent for the build from West Lindsey District Council shortly after.

The two new phases on the development will comprise 8 additional industrial units, with sizes ranging from 960 sq ft– 1,362 sq ft. The units will all be built to a high specification, to include an electric sectional door, personnel door, DDA compliant toilet facilities and allocated parking.

James Kirby, Owner of Stirlin, says: “We’re delighted to have started construction on two new phases at Stirlin Place. Following the success of phase 1 and 2 of the development, we have seen a strong demand for new commercial property within the area.

“Lincolnshire County Council studies have previously shown that there is a shortage of modern business premises in both the south and the north of the county. Therefore, it’s great to be able to provide further employment space to support the economic growth of the local business base.”

Tim Downing, Vice Chair of Invest Gainsborough and Director of Pygott and Crone, says: “Stirlin Group’s continued investment into Gainsborough with their high-quality business units, is testament to their confidence in the town.”

“With the first two phases of the development nearly sold out, it is great to see existing and new business relocating to Stirlin Place. Businesses are now recognising that Gainsborough, with its fantastic location and easy access to national transport links, as well as a good local skilled workforce, is the place to work and invest in.”

The new units are due to be completed in summer, with foundations currently underway for both phases.
