Construction work is well underway on six new industrial units in Terminus Road, Chichester, to help boost the local economy.
This is the second building project on the Terminus Road Industrial Estate that has been commissioned by Chichester District Council to support local businesses.
The £2 million industrial units are based on Plot 21, which was previously home to Goodwood Metalcraft and should be completed by October, 2018.
Each unit will provide between 230 and 300 square metres of floor space. It is predicted that each unit will employ around five people.
Cllr Tony Dignum, leader of Chichester District Council, said: “I’m very pleased to see this excellent new facility taking shape so quickly. One of the key aims of this scheme is to improve the area’s economy by attracting new employers.
“Because the site is owned by the council, the rental income will go towards helping the council provide key services for our residents.”
