If you’ve looked around when visiting Aldi (or maybe the vets) recently you’ve probably noticed frantic groundworks going on at the site next door which is being developed into a new business park off Manor Lane which is called Manor Point.
The first confirmed new tenant for the business park is Screwfix. (I only know this because I saw the sign at the entrance the other day, there isn’t anything on the developer’s site yet).
I can’t say I’m too excited about this personally, not least because I love Morreys and don’t want anything to impact upon their business. I’ll still be going there for anything I need. I’m not sure when it’s going to actually open because the business park is still very much a building site at the moment but there’s lots of activity going on so I expect it will be completed fairly quickly.
However, we will have to see what comes next to the site, which is supposed to be a mix of manufacturing type units and retail. Maybe a nice food delivery business would be good tucked away there – what would you like to see?
It’s good to see some new jobs being created in the local area though, and it will be interesting to see how this develops.
