North Kesteven District Council has approved plans for a third phase of Kirk’s Yard in Branston, Lincoln.
Kirk’s Yard is a 2.4-acre business park, located approximately 4 miles from Lincoln City Centre, which has been developed by local commercial property developer, Stirlin.
Stirlin completed the first phase of Kirk’s Yard back in March 2019, which comprises 6 industrial units, ranging in size, from 1,000 sq ft to 1,400 sq ft.
Due to high demand, this was swiftly followed with a second phase, which provided 5 more units at slightly larger sizes, ranging from 1,507 sq ft – 2,005 sq ft.
Following the success of these phases, with all units now occupied by a variety of growing businesses, Stirlin have been given the go-ahead to extend the site and construct a further 10 units.
Phase 3 will provide industrial units ranging in sizes 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 facility and allocated parking spaces.
Managing Director of Stirlin, Tony Lawton, says: “We’re delighted to receive planning approval for a third phase at Kirk’s Yard. Following the significant interest we received for the first two phases, with all units now sold, we’ve seen a strong demand for new employment space in the area.
“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.”
Jamie Thorpe, chartered surveyor at the site’s sole estate agency, Pygott & Crone, says: “Stirlin’s development of Kirks Yard in Branston has been hugely successful. Phase 2 saw all units sell off-plan well in advance of build completion and we are experiencing pent up demand in this location, with a waiting list of enquires. It comes as no surprise that the Local Authority welcomed a much-needed extension to the business park that will facilitate business growth and job creation in the area.”
Tony continues: “In addition to this scheme, we have numerous other new developments and phases on the horizon. We are continuously exploring opportunities to provide more space to facilitate growing businesses and bring further employment to the county.”
Construction of the new phase on Kirk’s Yard is due to start on site in the coming months, with further details to be announced very soon.
