Lancaster Way Business Park
Grovemere Property Limited recently hosted an official opening ceremony to celebrate the completion of their phase II infrastructure project.
Works were started in October 2016 by main contractor Mick George Limited who have created new Surface and Foul Water Drainage systems, an extension to the existing road network and helped facilitate other services in order to open up approximately 75 acres of additional commercial development land with B1, B2 and B8 consent.
Alongside Mick George Ltd, Stormport Professional Services Limited have delivered a new 3.5 megawatt power supply from the Ely Primary, Anglian Water have upgraded and extended their existing water main network on the park and National Grid have extended a gas supply in to the Enterprise Zone. These essential utilities mean that Lancaster Way Business Park can accommodate a wide and diverse mix of companies even those with large power requirements.
Lucy Frazer, MP for South East Cambridgeshire performed a ribbon cutting and said “ I am delighted to see the progress being made at Lancaster Way Business Park which forms part of the Cambridge Compass Enterprise Zone. The growth of business within the park during the last 5 years has been phenomenal and I understand a further 2 buildings are scheduled to commence prior to the end of 2017 creating another 150,000 sq. ft. of commercial space with the ability to host up to 600 employees”.
Harvey Bibby Marketing and Development Director at Grovemere Property Limited said “We are thrilled to have completed the latest phase of development and look forward to encouraging new businesses to relocate or expand within East Cambridgeshire’s Enterprise Zone. Lancaster Way already benefits from a diverse mix of 80 existing businesses with 1400 employees and these statistics are changing rapidly. Ely is in a huge growth phase with the new leisure park recently completed, Ely North under construction, the connection to Cambridge North train station now complete and the Ely Southern By Pass on target to be completed during 2018.”
