Demolition of the former Cummins factory paves the way for St Martin’s Park

A major milestone in the development of St Martin’s Park, Stamford, has been met as demolition and clearance of the former Cummins factory commences.

South Kesteven District Council and Burghley have appointed Contractor GF Tomlinson Group to undertake the work and they began site set up last week, with welfare units placed on site. Demolition works will begin shortly and will continue for the remainder of the year.

The 14.7-hectare St Martin’s Park will include a designated commercial area; mixed-use area; retirement village; range of residential properties, including affordable homes; and areas of green and open space.

Kelham Cooke, Leader of South Kesteven District Council, said: “This high-quality, well-designed and sustainable development will preserve and enhance the setting of this part of Stamford.

“The important mixed-use development will bring significant benefits to the town and wider area, providing new employment opportunities and homes for the town and district.

“We are really pleased to have reached the next phase of this collaboration which supports our vision for the area and are proud to be creating a legacy for future generations, while protecting our strong heritage.

As joint landowners, both South Kesteven District Council and Burghley Estates are committed to long-term investment and growth in Stamford while creating a balanced community that meets local housing needs.

Miranda Rock, Burghley House Director, said: “We are delighted to be taking important steps towards creating a development which will bring huge benefits to Stamford and the wider economy.

“We will ensure the St Martin’s Park development delivers sensitive and sustainable mixed-use amenities that work for the whole community.”

Planning permission for the site was granted in October 2021 with the decision notice being issued last month.
