Boost To Local Economy

West Lancashire Borough Council is looking to give a boost to the local economy and help create and safeguard jobs. Businesses will soon be able to rent out new and improved industrial units in Gorsey Place, Skelmersdale, that could deliver or secure 35 jobs. Councillor Ian Moran  Leader of West Lancashire Borough Council and portfolio holder for Economic Regeneration claims “The Council’s action plan shows that the authority is ambitious for the local economy and I am delighted the progress is being made on the project to create new and improved working environments for businesses”.

The Council has appointed Krol Corlett  to design and construct one new Industrial unit, replacing one damaged by fire in 2014, and the refurbishment and alteration of three adjoining units.

The project will cost £900,000 and each unit will provide 4,700 sq ft of high quality accommodation and will be available for rent around Christmas time. They will be suitable for a wide range of uses from manufacturing to storage and distribution.

This development follows on from the Council’s successful development of 11 new units at Greenwood Business Centre in 2016 which has proved highly popular with local and national businesses.

Krol Corlett was established as Krol Corlett & Company in June 1969, a small family based company that focused on completing small traditional construction projects for a range of clients. Its core management team now has extensive experience in both low and medium value construction contracts and a proven track record in successfully delivering schemes of values ranging from £50,000 to £5,000,000.
