New business facilities for South
A project to create new facilities for small and growing
businesses in South East Cornwall has been approved by Objective
One for European funding.
The development of Oakland Mews will create four additional
premises on the Liskeard Business Park. The premises are targeted
for office use but will also provide suitable workspace for
a range of business activities.
James Lockyer Associates Ltd, a local private firm of consulting
engineers, has put the project together and work is now in
progress. Construction should be completed in Autumn 2003.
Once complete, the project should enable the creation of
an additional 26 jobs and the development of business worth
£880,000 per year.
The creation of the mews development will cost £339,150.
A grant of almost £119,000 will be provided through
Objective One from the European Regional Development Fund,
while the remainder of the cost will be met by the applicant
and from private sector sources. For details of the premises
and availability, please contact James Lockyer Associates
on 01579 344771.
