A new commercial development that aims to act as an incubator for Doncaster businesses has secured council backing.
Doncaster Enterprise Park is being financed and constructed by Accumulate Capital. The development will comprise 66 starter units targeted at start-up and investment companies.
The 90,050 sq ft development will accommodate 344 people and have a gross development value of £12m. It is also set to support the creation of 200 new jobs during construction.
First unveiled in March 2020, the project has now received the backing of Doncaster Council.
Richard Craker, head of commercial projects at Accumulate Capital, said: "Covid-19 naturally resulted in a delay to this project, but Accumulate Capital has remained committed to completing this development by Q3 2021.
"We know doing so will be vital in helping local businesses recover from the impact of the pandemic, particularly as so many consider their workspace options.
"We are proud to be working alongside Mayor Ros Jones and Doncaster Council. Their support and willingness to collaborate demonstrates the importance of private developers and public bodies working together to serve the needs of local businesses and communities."
Ros Jones, Mayor of Doncaster, added: "It goes without saying that I am passionate about Doncaster and the health and prosperity of our communities.
"Generating employment opportunities both during the development phase and for many years to come meets one of the central pillars of our strategic plan."
