The opening of 15 new employment units in Cotgrave was marked by a special ceremony held by Rushcliffe Borough Council and its partners.
This development is part of the wider regeneration of Cotgrave and was made possible with the help of Growth Deal Funding from D2N2 LEP, which was secured by Rushcliffe Borough Council in 2015.
The wider regeneration of Cotgrave includes the construction of 470 new homes on the former colliery site along with extensive improvements to the town centre, all of which is well under way.
Councillor Simon Robinson, leader of the council, said: “These units provide much needed space for new and expanding businesses.
“They help the Council keep employment opportunities local to help support this growing community.”
Before the units had been completed, 10 had already been let which the council says demonstrates the “attractiveness of the location, the quality of the units and the demand in the area”.
Some of the businesses already on site include a distributor for shopping trolleys / casters, window cleaning franchise, internet bra sales, embroidery design studios and workshop, a home improvements firm and a HGV recruitment consultant.
These units are let on a three to six-year flexible lease, reducing risk for tenants by also providing them the ability to vacate, providing a rolling six months written notice period.
