Work is underway to create new industrial workspaces on the Riverside Enterprise Park, Saxilby.

West Lindsey District Council is delighted to announce that construction work has started on building six new units for new or expanding businesses.This marks the start of phase three of the development of the site, which has become one of the leading commercial business parks within the area.

As previously announced the 5.8 acre development has been constructed by Lincoln-based firm Stirlin Developments off Skellingthorpe Road in Saxilby and will provide commercial industrial / office premises.

The council is purchasing 6,000sq ft of workspace to provide much-needed leasehold opportunities for business tenants. Together in partnership the council is working with Stirlin Developments, Castle Square Developments and Lambert Smith Hampton on the plans.

Leader of West Lindsey District Council welcomed the start of the work. He said: “We are delighted to be able to invest in this exciting, high quality development in West Lindsey and to see work starting is great news.

Our investment is part of our growth programme, to address the shortage of leasehold workspace premises in the district and to promote business growth in our area.

Small businesses cannot always afford to build/purchase their own premises and the principle of developing small workspace units to accommodate new and expanding SMEs (Small Medium Enterprises) in order to generate jobs and wealth in our district is supported.

"Phase three will help increase the work opportunities for residents and provide essential work space for budding entrepreneurs to flourish and supporting other businesses to relocate.”

But the council leader urged business not to delay and to enquire about the units sooner rather than later to avoid disappointment.

He added: “Demand from businesses for the units in phase 1 and 2 have been high, due to the modern nature of the buildings and the site being located on a prime site on the Lincoln fringe and we are anticipating high demand for phase 3.”

The units range in size from approximately 750sq ft to 1,500sq ft to cater for a range of business uses at an affordable price. They are in a prominent location fronting the A57 and has good transport links to the A46 Lincoln bypass.

Further plans to open up a new Enterprise West Lindsey business park providing further managed workspace alongside design and build opportunities are also being pursued to satisfy future demand.

The offer:

The council is investing in the 6,000 sq ft light industrial development scheme to provide leasehold opportunities for tenants.

It will comprise:

  • 3 x 1,000 sq ft,
  • 1 x 1,500 sq ft
  • 2 x 750 sq ft units

Riverside Enterprise Park has continued to grow from strength to strength, proving to be very popular with local commercial businesses.

Matt Padley, Development Coordinator for Stirlin Developments said: “We are delighted to be partnering with West Lindsey District Council to deliver the next phase of units at Riverside Enterprise Park. We have been developing both commercial and residential sites in the district for over 10 years so it’s great to be able to partner with the local authority and offer these units to the leasehold market.

“The units will provide a great opportunity for small businesses and start-ups to lease high specification premises and provide a fantastic platform for these businesses to expand the services and goods they offer.”
