Plans submitted for new Scunthorpe town centre enterprise and innovation hub

A planning application has been submitted for a new enterprise and innovation hub in Scunthorpe town centre.

The plans funded by Government cash include business space, workshops, meeting rooms, breakout spaces and business development and networking areas. The focus will be on creating space for technology businesses and those in the creative industries.

Alongside the flexible office space and meeting rooms the proposal includes a licensed café and bar and 46 en suite studios for young professionals.

Globally recognised architects AHR have designed the concepts for the £10.7m redevelopment for North Lincolnshire Council as part of the Government’s Future High Streets Fund. The project is designed to further drive regeneration in the area.

Cllr Rob Waltham, leader, North Lincolnshire Council, said: “We’re confident this will be a game-changing addition to the high street, continuing the development already made into Church Square and extending it further into Scunthorpe. We worked closely with the towns MP Holly Mumby-Croft to secure the money from the Government for this amazing new development.

“The development here will radically reshape this area of Scunthorpe, attracting new people for new reasons into the heart of the town.”
