North KestevenThe place to investThe place to grow

Sleaford is the largest settlement in North Kesteven, a growing town of 18,000 with a history of manufacturing that goes back more than 2 millennia. From Made in Sleaford to the Sleaford Masterplan and Heart of Sleaford, the economic development team is involved in a host of projects in the town. There are a number of key studies relating to Sleaford, including Sleaford Town Centre Vision, Sleaford Strategic Delivery Plan, Sleaford Urban Design Study, Sleaford Signage Strategy and the aforementioned Sleaford Masterplan.

Sleaford Moor Enterprise Park

Sleaford Moor Enterprise Park

North Kesteven District Council’s vision for Sleaford Moor Enterprise Park is ‘a premier strategic employment park servicing Sleaford’s ambition for economic and employment growth, meeting the needs of fast growing local businesses in key sectors and facilitating inward investment’.

The authority purchased the site in May 2017 in order to bring forward this Strategic Employment Site, as categorised in the Central Lincolnshire Local Plan, for economic development. The site has, for a number of reasons, failed to be delivered by the market.

Since acquisition, North Kesteven has set up a new governance structure for decision making, produced a framework masterplan and business plan and explored innovative solutions to provide utilities to the site. The next steps for the project will be to produce an overall masterplan for the site with detailed designs to obtain planning permission to service the site and begin construction on the initial phase(s).

A hybrid planning application containing the masterplan has been submitted for planning consent, along with indicative drawings and layouts. It seeks full planning permission for the construction of site-wide infrastructure including a spine road within the site, landscaping, drainage and earthworks, and at the same time requests outline permission for 37,245 m2 of new buildings with further details for them submitted at subsequent stages.
