New Development To Create Over 1,700 Warehouse Jobs In Lincolnshire

A huge new £100 million development is set to create over 1,700 warehouse jobs in Lincolnshire now that the council has given a green light to the scheme.

The development will be built at Spitalgate Level to the east of the A1 now that South Kesteven District Council have given permission for the plans.

The development will consist of three warehouses with a combined floorspace of up to 930,000 square feet and will create hundreds of full time equivalent jobs for the region.

Carta Real Estate (Grantham) is the firm behind the development which will create up to 1,727 vacancies in Lincolnshire.

Announcing the council’s decision, James Ridings,Carta Real Estate’s director, said: “Our journey at Spitalgate has been one of over three years in the making. We believe the proposed development is a true reflection of collaboration with all the key stakeholders.”

"A development that will provide an investment of nearly £100 million situated at one of the key Grantham gateways, over 1,700 new equivalent full time jobs for local people, an acceptable solution in highways terms, access by sustainable modes of travel, through a travel plan that is secured by a legal agreement, and a development that is generally considered acceptable with regards to detail assessment of drainage, air quality, archaeology, heritage and ecology,” added Mr Ridings.

Local councillors, who backed the plans unanimously, welcomed the decision to go ahead with the proposals in Grantham.

Councillor Jacky Smith of the Grantham St. Wulfram ward said: “This is a major development for the people of Grantham, surrounding and everything. It’s something we have waited for a long, long time. It’s something Grantham has needed for a long time, and I will be one of the first to have a really good shout for joy when it gets completed.”

Councillor Paul Wood of the Viking ward also commented, saying: “It will create jobs, it’s in the right area for investment, the few little problems can be sorted out.” The independent councillor added that the proposal was a ‘no brainer’.
