Job creating site wins outline planning approval

Stirlin has secured outline planning approval from West Lindsey District Council for its new development: Enterprise West Lindsey.

Working in partnership with Castle Square Securities and Banks Long & Co, Stirlin have been given the green light for the new site, which means more than 400 new county jobs are now one step closer.

Stirlin Developments Managing Director, James Kirby, said: “We are absolutely thrilled to have secured outline planning permission. This scheme has been several years in the making and it will provide opportunities for many many years to come. We first identified the site in 2015, as an obvious and required extension of our Saxilby Enterprise Park.

“The Saxilby & Ingleby Parish Council Neighbourhood Plan consultation was in full swing and we had to move swiftly to promote our scheme for its inclusion. The Parish Council was fantastic to work with and appreciated the merits of our proposal, with its economic benefits and infrastructure improvements.

“I would like to take this opportunity to thank the members of the Parish Council and the Neighbourhood Plan Steering Group for their assistance and support during the consultation process and beyond.”

The 20-acre site will provide more than 200,000 sq ft of space and offer design-and-build requirements from 3,000 sq ft to 30,000 sq ft and a range of freehold and leasehold properties.

These will include light industrial, hybrid and office units suitable for a wide range of businesses, from start-ups to small-to-medium enterprises and larger national operators wanting a presence in the Lincoln area.

Kirby continued: “I am feeling incredibly positive about the Enterprise West Lindsey site because its location has fantastic connectivity and has always enjoyed strong demand during the years that we have been developing in the area.

“This site, unlike any other we have previously delivered, will be capable of much larger requirements. Therefore, it will facilitate a much broader range of businesses.

“Demand for light industrial units, manufacturing space and distribution warehousing will, in our opinion, only increase in the decade ahead, as more people than ever turn to the internet for their shopping.”
