Work almost complete on industrial units in Gorsey Place, Skelmersdale

Work is almost complete on new and refurbished industrial units by West Lancashire Borough Council that will boost the local economy and help create and safeguard 35 jobs.

The Council has been working with Krol Corlett to design and construct one new Industrial unit and refurbish and upgrade three adjoining units.

A business has already moved into one of the units, and two more are now ready for new tenants. The final unit will be available to rent later in the summer.

The project has cost £900,000 and each unit will provide 4,500 sq ft of high quality accommodation. They are suitable for a wide range of uses from manufacturing to storage and distribution.

This development follows on from the Council’s successful development of 11 new units at Greenwood Business Centre in 2016 which has proved highly popular with local and national businesses.

Councillor Ian Moran, Leader of West Lancashire Borough Council and Portfolio Holder for Economic Regeneration, said: “A key priority for the Council is to be ambitious for the local economy. I am really pleased the Council has been able to create these new units which will provide new and improved working environments for businesses and create jobs in the local area.”

Simon Krol, Director of Krol Corlett, said: “We have enjoyed working with the Council on this project to deliver great new premises that will help boost the local economy and help safeguard and deliver jobs.”
