Goodwin & Tucker Ltd via its principle contractor Evergreen Group UK ltd has submitted a planning application that, if approved, would see an 8.5 acre site on Sawcliffe Industrial site in Scunthorpe transformed to open up opportunities for businesses.

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 Phase 1 – to provide eight business units varying in size from 800 to 2,000 sq. ft. complete with secure yard.

The units would comprise fully insulated walls and roof, power floated concrete flooring, disabled toilets, and large roller shutters.

Sean Tucker, Director, 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 free-hold 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.”

Cllr Rob Waltham, leader, 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.”
