Work set to begin on new industrial units at Lincoln business park

Work is set to begin on the first phase of a new warehouse and manufacturing space development at Network 46.

North Kesteven District Council approved the application for the first phase of development of two buildings of more than 95,000 sq ft in total in March 2018.

Network 46, which is owned by St. Modwen, is a 70 acre business park in Lincoln on the A46.

The construction of the two buildings is expected to take 32 weeks, and is due to be completed by the end of 2018.

Rob Richardson, Development Manager at St. Modwen, said: “The granting of planning consent for our first two buildings at Network 46 was an important step towards the delivery of much needed new employment space in Lincolnshire.

“The Business Park is already home to Apogee, Turbine Efficiency, DPD and UK Mail and the proven location and our track record of delivery is already attracting good interest.”

Andy McDonough, Head of Development, Economic and Cultural Services at NKDC, said: “Network 46 is one of three strategic employment sites within North Kesteven and we are delighted to be working with a company of the stature of St. Modwen to see this site come forward.”
