New opportunities as business park near Lincoln expands

Business opportunities: Phase two is now underway to develop a business park near Lincoln after the first ten units were sold.

Lincoln building service Stirlin Developments Limited has concluded sales of its new ten-unit Stirlin Court scheme on Saxilby Enterprise Park in Lincoln.

Stirlin completed sales of the buildings in its one acre scheme, as well as acquiring the adjacent one acre site – where the development of ‘phase two’ is now underway.

Stirlin’s Managing Director, James Kirby, said: “We completed sales on seven units during the last year, giving us the confidence to acquire the adjacent site to continue our development.

“The first sale on phase two has already been agreed and construction is underway.

“Construction of the new premises for Callow Retail is already well underway and we are just about to start building six small workshop units which will be available by the mid-Summer.

“With prices again commencing from £60,000 we are confident these will prove very popular.”

Chartered Surveyors Hodgson Elkington, who are marketing the scheme, say that small industrial units available for sale are rare in the Lincoln market and there has been a very strong demand for small freehold units at Saxilby Enterprise Park.

Hodgson Elkington Partner, Dan Race, said: “One of the most successful aspects of phase one was small workshop units offered for sale freehold to local businesses at prices from £60,000. These have proved very popular and all five of these sold ‘off plan”.

The largest unit on phase one was sold to Torque Engineering, who moved in in June. Director Jeremy Lee said: “As our business continued to grow, a move to our own bespoke facility was an essential pre-requisite.

“The Stirlin Court development gave us this opportunity and we have been impressed by the speed with which Stirlin have managed the development of our initial concept into our ideal high quality business facility”.

Existing occupiers on phase one include Print Talk, Spence Accounting and Torque Engineering.

Callow Retail Ltd. are occupying the first building in phase two. Managing Director, Scott Frances said: “We have traded on Saxilby Enterprise for many years and Stirlin Court has offered us a fantastic opportunity to acquire purposed-designed premises that exactly meet the needs of our business as we continue to grow.”
