Construction starts on Willoughton Place in Gainsborough!

Following planning approval from West Lindsey District Council, works are well underway on the first phase of the 1.3 acre development: Willoughton Place.

Providing 25,000 sq ft of employment space, Willoughton Place 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.

Located within Gainsborough’s prime commercial district on Foxby Lane, the site benefits from easy access to the A1, M180 and A15 road networks.

Willoughton Place can also accommodate design and build projects, which will provide businesses with the opportunity to acquire a bespoke facility built to their detailed requirements.

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.”

Cllr Colin Davie, Executive Councillor for Economy at Lincolnshire County council, says: “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.

Interested parties are asked to contact Stirlin on 01522 682752 or their agents, Pygott & Crone on 01522 536777 to enquire about the new business park.
