NKDC pitches plans for 19 business units on Teal Park

North Kesteven District Council has put forward its £2 million application for 19 industrial units on Teal Park in North Hykeham.

The 19 units, if approved by the council’s planning committee, would be grouped with five detached blocks; they would be occupied by industrial, warehouse or distribution uses.

The scheme would build on the council’s £21 million capital programme for supporting business growth.

The developments have been designed as ‘start up’ units and comprise a range of floor spaces from 500 to 2,000 sq ft. The overall size of the developments is 20,075 sq ft on a site that totals 1.44 acres.

The reserved matters plan has been drawn up with local contractor Lindum Group, with them in mind to construct the units on Blackwood Court off Teal Park Road.

There will be 29 parking spaces on the site, of which six could be used for disabled persons.

The development site forms part of the Teal Park allocated employment site, which was granted outline planning permission in 2011, for a total of 133,720m2 of employment, floorspace, a hotel, public house, leisure and trade showroom floorspace.

The site sits in an area initially identified as ‘Phase 2’ of the Teal Park development and is at the boundary with the Phase 1 part of the site.

Recommendations include a commence date of no later than June 1, 2017.

The council’s planning committee will consider the proposals at a meeting on April 22.

The land is currently owned by Lincolnshire County Council and the park is shared by companies including Siemens’ turbine servicing plant and Lincolnshire’s Energy from Waste Facility.

On March 2, Taylor Lindsey was also awarded planning permission for 26,700 sq ft of new business space at its Teal Park site.
