TRADE COUNTER DEVELOPMENT GETS THE GO-AHEAD
More job opportunities are promised for Boston later this year, after the town’s planners gave the go-ahead for further industrial development.
South Street Capital, on behalf of private investors, received planning consent for a new trade counter development at the Boston Trade Park in Norfolk Street. The site lies about one mile north of the town centre.
Lincoln-based John Roberts Architects secured the planning consent for South Street Capital and Banks Long & Co together with joint agents Lambert Smith Hampton will market the scheme.
The high-quality trade park scheme will comprise 35,000 sq ft of space, made-up of 11 units, ranging in size from 2,750 sq ft to 4,500 sq ft. The scheme will feature two terraces based at the front of the site, next to Screwfix and accessed from Norfolk Street.
Boston Trade Park is already home to well-known companies, including Screwfix, Rexel, Crown Paints, Edmundson Electrical, Howdens and Euro Car Parts. A number of units within the new scheme are also already reserved for other trade counter occupiers.
Work on the expansion scheme is due to start on site in April.
Banks Long & Co Associate Director James Hall said: “Now planning permission has been granted, our client can commence construction of the trade park. The new units will be ready for occupation this Autumn.”
Lambert Smith Hampton Associate Director Andrew France said: “We anticipate a good level of demand for the units, from both national and regional occupiers.”
