New industrial units planned
A Berwick building firm has submitted plans for a new scheme on the Ramparts Business Park.
GM Craig has lodged a planning application with Northumberland County Council for two blocks of three separate light industrial units on a site neighbouring its own headquarters.
Director Neil Craig, in a report accompanying the application, states: ‘We have identified a need for this size of unit on the business park with nothing available at this size.
‘We have three local businesses who have secured at least one of the six units each.
‘All three businesses are young, already established and looking for the correct premises to expand and grow.
‘Without this accommodation all three are considering moving to other parts of the county.’
Berwick Town Council’s planning committee has raised no objections.
