A brand-new employment space offering a range of commercial units has been built in Gainsborough by Lincolnshire-based contractors Stirlin.

Wharton Place, on Foxby Lane, was completed recently and provides over 18,900 sq ft of new employment space across 1.3 acres, offering a mix of light industrial units suitable for a variety of business uses.

Tony Lawton, Managing Director of Stirlin, who was at the site visit this week, said: 

“We are thrilled to announce the recent completion of Wharton Place Business Park, which not only adds to our varied project portfolio, but meets the demand for contemporary, cost-effective commercial space in the area.

“Our investment in Gainsborough is a testament to the town’s growing appeal as a thriving place to live and work. We are pleased to be able to help facilitate the growing local business base and bring new employment to the area.”

All units will benefit from allocated parking, an electric sectional door, a personnel door and DDA compliant toilet facilities, as well as an eaves height of five metres to accommodate a mezzanine floor upon request.

Cllr Jeanette McGhee, who represents the ward in which the development has been built, said: 

“This is a fantastic development that sits nicely alongside the existing commercial activity in the area and provides a choice of units for business looking to locate here in Gainsborough.

“With its links to the major road networks and to neighbouring cities of Lincoln and Doncaster, West Lindsey is the ideal location for businesses.”

Wharton Place is the third commercial park that Stirlin has delivered on Foxby Lane, following the success of Stirlin Place and Willoughton Place

Director of Planning Regeneration and Communities at West Lindsey District Council, Sally Grindrod-Smith, said: 

“I’m really pleased to have been able to visit the completed units at Wharton Place, the latest development on Foxby Lane Business Park by Stirlin. 

“The 10 additional units provide further quality commercial space complementing the existing business ecosystem here on Foxby Lane. Neighbouring Mercury House, Stirlin Place and Willoughton Place are already home to a wide range of businesses providing local employment opportunities. This further investment into the wider site adds further diversity to Gainsborough’s established industrial property market, helping to meet demand for industrial, manufacturing and warehouse developments. 

“We are delighted that Stirlin continue to invest significantly within West Lindsey with both commercial and residential developments. The current position with 50% of Wharton Place sold within weeks of completion really does highlight that West Lindsey is a great place to work and invest.”
