Trebor Developments handed the keys over to Burnley Council on the completed Phase One development at Vision Park at the official launch of the new business facilities.
Phase One consists of a range of quality industrial units from 1,500 sq ft to 5,000 sq ft, which will be available on flexible terms. Several units are already under offer.
Trebor is promoting Phases Two and Three for office accommodation and hybrid industrial/office units to meet occupiers’ specific requirements.
Bob Tattrie, managing partner for Trebor Developments, said: “We are delighted to see Phase One handed over and expect very strong interest in the units. We have worked closely with Burnley Borough Council in partnership to deliver a facility which the council can manage effectively and attract a wide range of occupiers. We are sure Phases Two and Three at Vision Park will also be attractive to occupiers wanting office accommodation or high quality office industrial accommodation in the area”.
Council Leader, Mark Townsend said: “I’m delighted with the completed first phase, the buildings look fantastic and we already have three companies at the sign up stage and two at heads of terms stage.
“The site is set to create several new highly skilled jobs for Burnley, with a target of 300 new jobs at Vision Park when Phase II of the site is complete. The spacious modern units have excellent facilities for growth hi-tech digital and manufacturing businesses, in an excellent location in Burnley’s Knowledge Quarter, close to the town centre and motorway junctions.
“Vision Park and the new Evolve business space, has been described as one of the most exciting commercial developments in the Lancashire region. Burnley is already a regionally significant centre for advanced manufacturing, with a growing digi-tech sector and we are creating modern business environments to attract growing business in these sectors.”
Burnley’s Vision Park development has been supported by a grant from the LEP’s £320m Growth Deal investment programme.
Graham Cowley, Chair of the LEP’s Growth Deal board, said: “Through initiatives like the Lancashire Growth Deal we are able to create spaces and facilities like this which businesses need to thrive. With Phase One now completed, and handed over to Burnley Council to progress, the LEP looks forward to seeing Vision Park flourish as a hub of innovation, productivity and commercial growth.”
