£7m Rotherham industrial development set to create 180 jobs

Work has begun on a new South Yorkshire industrial development that is expected to create up to 180 new jobs.

Developer EV Waddington Ltd has begun work on a range of new industrial units in Rotherham as part of a £7m project.

The developer, who has secured a £1.6m grant from the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF), has started work on the units at 31 East in Dinnington.

Comprising 10 units of 5,560 to 32,300 sq ft, the units will be built over three terraces and aim to provide space for SMEs in the region.

Developer Tony Waddington commented: “Our new project at 31 East continues our response to addressing the lack of commercial property offer of this type in the region.

“The premises are designed with flexibility, to allow units to be combined and accommodate a variety of uses and sizes.”

Paul Mercer, managing director at Mercer & Co, who helped secure the £1.6m ERDF grant award, added: “This latest addition to the EV Waddington development portfolio will help enhance the competitiveness of SMEs and accelerate development in the region.

“It will help accommodate up to 180 new FTE jobs and generate £96m GVA over the next 10-year period thanks to ERDF support.”
