Green light for accountants’ new £1.5m Louth offices

Work will begin on the new site this winter

Accountants Duncan & Toplis received planning permission to build a new £1.5 million office space in Louth.

The plans were submitted to East Lindsey District Council with the support of Stirlin Developments to build contemporary offices on Fairfield Industrial Estate. Work will begin on the new site this winter and the development is expected to be completed in summer 2020.

The firm will look to move its growing team of 23 from its current site in the centre of Louth to the larger, purpose built premises.

Once formally approved, work will begin at the site on Lincoln Way. A new access road will be created to give cars access to the development.

The development will include a car park with 53 spaces for Duncan & Toplis’ colleagues and clients. It will also include a contemporary, open plan office space to accommodate the growing team over two floors. There are also plans to sublet part of the first floor to local businesses.

Duncan & Toplis first came to Louth in 2007 when it acquired the practice of Oxley Coxon accountants in 2007. It has operated from there ever since.

It has 11 offices throughout the East Midlands in Boston, Grantham, Lincoln, Loughborough, Louth, Melton Mowbray, Newark, Skegness, Sleaford, Spalding and Stamford.

Adrian Reynolds, managing director at Duncan & Toplis, said: “We see a great deal of potential in Louth, and we’re committed to investing in the area so we can continue to provide a range of services to the local businesses that we have gotten to know so well over the years.

James Kirby, managing director of Stirlin Developments, said: “The design is fantastic, with credit to our clients for the detailed brief and our Development Manager, Matt Padley, for his ability to deliver upon it. Now that planning has been approved we’re very much looking forward to getting started on the construction.”
