North Kesteven District Council appoint agent for £56 million ‘eco conscious’ business park

North Kesteven District Council in Lincolnshire have appointed an agent after a competitive tender process was held to become the sole agents for the council's proposed ‘eco conscious’ Sleaford Moor Enterprise Park in Sleaford.

The scheme, which is currently being considered by planners, will bring an estimated 500 jobs to the area and is seen as a ground-breaking investment by North Kesteven District Council to help support local businesses and boost the local economy.

If approved, the agent who are commercial property experts, will work closely with the local authority to secure tenants for the new development, which has already had significant enquiries from local businesses.

Commenting, Leader of North Kesteven District Council, Councillor Richard Wright said that the council are “excited to announce our partnership” with the agent and that they have “worked with the team previously and are confident that together we will continue to build on previous success”.

He added: “Sleaford Moor Enterprise Park will be a significant development for our district, involving investment by our council of £56 million.

“While bringing potential for new opportunities and jobs growth in our local economy, it also forms part of our ongoing commitment to invest in our flourishing communities and North Kesteven as a fantastic place to live and work.

“Sleaford Moor Enterprise Park makes an attractive proposition for businesses as it is being developed with the highest environmental standards. The site itself has been designed to include tree planting, wildflower verges and sustainable drainage systems doubling as water sources for wildlife. Numerous low carbon measures, such as solar panels and UV light harnessing technology will be considered for each of the plots, in details submitted at later stages.

“Our goal is also to make the site a very pleasant environment to work in, with plans to utilise the landscaping schemes to include nature walkways around features, such as tree planting and attenuation ponds. With both the local environment and employee welfare high on every business’ agenda, it’s been designed as an enterprise park fit for the future.”
