The project will also consist of bespoke industrial units and a Petrol Filling Station with a retail store, which will have an attractive and modern appearance, which will help to strengthen the economic base of Lincolnshire, and long term will encourage inward investment in the area.
The Lincs Gateway business park will benefit from its location on the A16 where it will form a ‘gateway to Spalding’ and encourage the local economy to diversify and so generate quality jobs for local people. The Project will be the main thoroughfare to Spalding, with the main approach roads from the South and West.
The project is there to provide a provision, which is currently lacking within Spalding, which will help provide good employment opportunities. The SQW group conclude that the Lincs Gateway Business Park can make a real contribution to the local economy in Spalding, based on providing choice in the market, and differentiation by quality and type of development. Over the next decade, the business park could bring between 500 and 1,000 new additional jobs into the town and safeguard other jobs that might otherwise be lost to the immediate area.
