Work on new business units and council depot begins in Metheringham

Work is now under way on new business units and council depot in Metheringham.

The 10,000 square feet of industrial space split into new workshops will be the first delivered by North Kesteven District Council since the completion at Blackwood Court, Teal Park, where all 19 units were let within eight months of the site’s opening.

The development will sit alongside the authority’s new depot, ensuring the waste services continue to run as efficiently as possible now and into the future.

In the last year alone the team collected more than 3.4 million general waste, recycling and garden waste bins, and this is set to grow as more houses are built in the area in the years to come.

The new facility, being built on land off Moor Lane, Metheringham, will be financed through careful allocation of additional receipts as new homes are delivered.

Councillor Richard Wright, leader of NKDC, said: “It’s fantastic to see work starting on the council’s new depot and business units being built alongside it.

“We are an authority committed to providing the highest quality services for our residents and supporting businesses to be able to grow, thrive and support the local economy while providing local jobs.”
