New Metheringham business depot nears completion

A new depot and seven business units alongside it are due to be completed in Metheringham this spring.

The new depot on Scoley Court, off Moor Lane, will enable North Kesteven District Council’s waste and recycling services to continue to operate as efficiently as possible.

As well as a new recycling depot, the will site also include 10,000 square feet of industrial space split into new business units.

All seven business units at Scoley Court have tenants ready to move in when the site is completed, including Andy Grahm of Phoenix Kitchens.

Andy Graham, Owner and Director of the business, which has been in operation in the village for almost 15 years, and manufactures bespoke kitchen and bedroom furniture, said: “The move to Scoley Court is much-needed and a timely opportunity for expansion.

“We started manufacturing our own kitchens four years ago and have been growing ever since and our current unit is bursting at the seams.

“I have also wanted to open a showroom for some time and this was looking like a separate location, but Scoley Court will allow us to have one and expand as well.

“This will almost certainly lead to more employment because of the move. We are really excited about the possibilities and opportunities this will bring.”

Councillor Richard Wright, Leader of NKDC, said: “To have tenants for all the business units is a real achievement and it’s great to see one of our current tenants taking the opportunity to grow and expand.

“The works being on time and on budget is a fantastic achievement and testament to everyone who has worked so hard to make this happen.”
