Industry on the up in Langold

The Council is helping to bring more jobs and investment to Langold through the creation of four new business and manufacturing units.

Work has already started on the new industrial units at the Council’s industrial site on Harrison Drive, which will also provide the opportunity for existing businesses to expand.

The buildings are expected to be ready for businesses to move into before the summer and the Council has already received interest in two of the 92 square metre units.

The development has been made possible thanks to an investment of £178k from the Council, in addition to a grant of £135k from the Sheffield City Region’s Local Growth Fund.

Cllr Jo White, Cabinet Member for Economic Development at Bassetlaw District Council, said: “We look to create opportunities for businesses of all sizes across the district and this new development shows how we are supporting our small businesses in village locations. It also shows how we can work with Local Enterprise Partnerships such as the Sheffield City Region to drive investment in our area.”

Cllr Gill Freeman, Ward Member for Langold added: “It’s fantastic that work has now started and I look forward to these Business Units providing more jobs and opportunities for the local community.”

The Local Growth Fund is government funding awarded to Local Enterprise Partnerships (LEPs) for projects that benefit the local area and economy.

Sir Nigel Knowles, chair of the SCR LEP, said: "This project in Langold is a great example of how the public and private sector work together in the SCR to get things done. Our ability to work collaboratively, in a straightforward and practical way, is one of the real drivers for growing investor confidence in our region.”
