Construction starts on new phase of Lincoln business park

Lincolnshire property developer, Stirlin, has commenced construction on further employment space at its new business park in Branston.

Kirk’s Yard is a 1.2-acre commercial development, situated approximately 4 miles to the South East of Lincoln City Centre.

The development is located just outside the village of Branston, providing excellent transport links to Lincoln and easy access to the A15, B1188 and the new Lincoln Eastern Bypass.

Stirlin completed Phase 1 of Kirk’s Yard in March 2019, which comprised 6 high-specification light industrial units ranging in size, from 1,000 sq ft to 1,400 sq ft.

Phase 2 will provide 5 additional industrial units at slightly larger sizes, ranging from 1,507 sq ft – 2,005 sq ft.

Each unit will be built to a high specification, providing warehouse space with an electric sectional door and personnel door, DDA compliant toilet facilities and allocated parking spaces.

“Following the significant interest we received for Phase 1, with all units now sold and occupied, we’ve seen a strong demand for new employment space within the area,” said Tony Lawton, Managing Director of Stirlin.

“This interest pointed towards a requirement for slightly larger premises. Therefore, we have designed Phase 2 accordingly. We’re so pleased to be able to provide further employment space to meet this demand.

“With three out of the five units in Phase 2 now sold subject to contract, the site has proven extremely popular, particularly due to its easy access to the new Lincoln Eastern Bypass which allows people to avoid traffic congestion in the City Centre.

“We are currently exploring new site opportunities to provide more space to facilitate growing businesses and bring further employment to the county.”

Structural works are currently underway on the new building, with completion expected for September 2021.
