More plans submitted for industrial units in Littleport

NEW industrial units could be build on agricultural land in Littleport under plans submitted to East Cambridgeshire District Council.

Land owner David Watson has applied to convert 4,000sq m of agricultural land at the rear of Woodlands Business Park, in Wisbech Road, into two new business units and storage for farm machinery.

Architects Tony Walton Design said: “The owner has been approached by several applicants for new start up industrial units and he has need to site his farm machinery close to his offices.

“This extension to the site, whilst using existing agricultural land, would be well screened with the addition of earth bunding and landscaping works to minimise visual impact.”

The architect added that the development would also create additional local employment in the area.

The application comes just weeks after Soham businessman Jonthan James announced his intention to build a £3million business park on a three-acre site adjoining the award-winning Wisbech Road BP/spar forecourt on the A10.

A decision is expected on both applications within the coming eight weeks. To see both plans, or to have your say, visit
