J Tomlinson starts work on Cotgrave employment units

May 8, 2017

A construction team from J Tomlinson has begun working on a site in Nottinghamshire to create 15 new light industrial units.

Rushcliffe Borough Council secured £1.8m Growth Deal funding from the D2N2 Local Enterprise Partnership for the project in Cotgrave.

The business units, off Hollygate Lane, range in size from 750 to 2,000 square feet. They will be completed in July and will be let on flexible lease terms at market rates to local businesses. Six of the business units have already been pre-let.

J Tomlinson managing director (construction), Martin Gallagher, said: “As a Nottinghamshire-based business, J Tomlinson is very pleased to be involved in this scheme to develop new units for companies in the area and to help support local job creation and the local economy.”

A ground-breaking ceremony was held to mark the start of the project on site.

Coun Neil Clarke, Leader at Rushcliffe Borough Council, said: “Regenerating Cotgrave has been a priority and part of that is making sure that we support both the town centre, jobs and business start-up or expansion. As all of our existing units in Cotgrave are already occupied, our joint investment will provide much needed space for new and expanding businesses whilst also supporting employment opportunities for local people as the town continues to grow. “Securing LEP funding and a demonstrable track record in small business units makes this a good commercial investment for the council and its principal partners, Nottinghamshire County Council and Cotgrave Town Council, and is an excellent example of the public sector working proactively with the private sector through the D2N2 Local Enterprise Partnership and Wilson Bowden.”
