Lincoln business park earmarked for expansion

It would help to create jobs, say developers

Plans have been submitted to West Lindsey District Council to expand a business park near Lincoln.

Globe Consultants lodged the proposal to build three new buildings at Highcliffe Business Park in Ingham.

Under the plans, a total of 10 units would be used for industrial and business use.

A large unit providing 107.60 square metres of floor space would be located next to the entrance to the park.

Meanwhile, each smaller unit would provide 53.80 square metres of space.

The new buildings would also come with 16 car parking spaces.

Designs for the new units on the Highcliffe site.

The park is currently home to such firms as Active Lincolnshire, Swann Lighting and Richard Betts 4X4 (Lincoln) Ltd and the plan looks to provide further space for new businesses.

The developer said in its plans that the proposal would allow for new firms to grow and create jobs in the area.

It added that an expansion of the Highcliffe site would create a “meaningful and valuable contribution towards achieving economic growth, prosperity and jobs” as outlined in the local plan.

A decision on the plan will be made by the council at a later date.
