Industrial unit project to kick start new firms

NORTH Kesteven District Council has added 14 new units to its workshop portfolio thanks to a partnership scheme with Taylor Lindsey.

The Seven-O-Seven industrial units in Bracebridge Heath were named after the last Avro 707 Series of delta-winged aircraft which was assembled on this site, the former RAF Bracebridge Heath, before being towed to RAF Waddington for its first flight in 1953.

With close access to the A15 and Lincoln, eight out of the 14 units are already let. The industrial units managed by Hodgson Elkington range from 750sq ft to 1,250 sq ft, available on flexible leasing terms. The purpose of the project is to bring forward new business premises to support start up and existing business within North Kesteven. The district council now has 77 units over seven sites.

Coun Marion Brighton said: “North Kesteven District Council is dedicated to economic regeneration, and wherever businesses need help we are willing to provide it. It is important that we offer jobs as well as housing in the district, and these units are the perfect way to help provide employment in the area. The units look fantastic and it is extremely good news that more than 50 per cent of the units have been let already.”

Robin Taylor of Taylor Lindsey thanked NKDC for the support and commitment. “We are delighted to have worked in partnership with the council. Together we identified a need and have managed to re-develop on a Brownfield site which is great for the area,” he said.
