A major new business park development is being brought forward in Scunthorpe.
Lincolnshire Wolds based Goodwin & Tucker Ltd, via its principle contractor, Market Rasen’s Evergreen Group UK Ltd, has submitted a planning application that, if approved, would see the 8.5 acre Sawcliffe Industrial Park transformed to open up opportunities.
The company plans to develop the industrial estate by creating commercial space that is affordable, functional and makes a bold design statement.
Evergreen is seeking planning permission from North Lincolnshire Council to develop the first of four phases, with Phase One to provide eight business units varying in size from 800 to 2,000 sq ft complete with secure yard.
Offices and heavy industrial opportunities could follow in further phases, with the developers open to adaptations to suit users.
The units would feature fully insulated walls and roof, power floated concrete flooring, disabled toilets, and large roller shutters.

Sean Tucker, director of Evergreen Group UK, said: “The proposed development would give businesses control to shape their unit to their needs.
“We understand that every business is unique and has a diverse range of requirements, and are happy to provide a variety of rental options from as little as £50 per week, right through to straight forward freehold purchases. We have worked closely with the council and AM2 Architects to provide a place to work that embraces architectural statement and commercial viability, and look forward to finding out plans are approved.”
The site is off Hargreaves Way, and is bordered by the DEM Manufacturing and Skymark facilities, to the north, the stretch of Winterton Road along Appleby Ponds, to the east, BOC Gases to the south and Holme Steel Fabricators to the west. Phase one is to the west, closest to Bessemer Way.
Cllr Rob Waltham, leader of North Lincolnshire Council, said: “These are major plans that would open up opportunities for businesses to flourish and prosper in North Lincolnshire and would create jobs not only in the initial construction phase, but also through businesses locating to the site.
“By providing ready-made units, it makes life easier for businesses considering moving here as they don’t have that added worry of having to find somewhere to operate from.
“The plans are subject to approval and if successful, would make a real difference and encourage and support more businesses to set up or relocate to this great county North Lincolnshire.”
