Work begins on Hayle Business Space

Left to right: Barry Pascoe, Eric Woolley, David Smithies, Carleen Kelemen, Russell Dodge and Caroline SargentWork has started to provide much needed workspace and create more than 60 jobs in the far west of Cornwall.

The Hayle Business Space project is worth more than £1.3million and will receive just under £471,000 of investment from the Objective One European Regional Development Fund (ERDF). When complete it will provide three to four industrial units totalling 1,952 square metres at Hayle Industrial Park, which is just off the Loggans Roundabout to the east of Hayle. It is estimated that contractors, Concrete Contactors Ltd, will finish the build in October this year (2006) and that 64 jobs will be created and 32 safeguarded when businesses move onto the site.

Carleen Kelemen, Director of the Objective One Partnership, said: "Quality workspace is key to supporting business success across Cornwall. We have done much to improve the provision of workspace investing over £26 million into £75 million of workspace projects. It is essential that the public and private sectors work together to create high quality workspace to keep up with the ever increasing demand from new and expanding businesses."

Environmental features will include double skin insulation in the walls and roof, triple glazed roof lights, grey water collection and short flush toilets. A green travel plan will also be drawn up by the developer, Construction and Real Estate Properties Ltd, to try to promote environmentally friendly methods of transport such as cycling and car sharing. As part of this bicycle storage facilities and showers will be available for each unit.

David Smithies, of Construction and Real Estate Properties Limited, said: "We are pleased to be undertaking this speculative private sector property development in Hayle and to have secured the Objective One grant funding which has enabled the project to happen."

The building design and project management, including securing the Objective One investment, was undertaken by Truro based Business Location Services Ltd.

Penwith District Council's Regeneration Officer for Hayle, Caroline Sargent, said: "There are waiting lists for business space throughout Penwith. There will be strong demand for these quality units, enabling local employers to expand and others to locate in this increasingly significant area for business investment."
