Wednesfield North Councillor Phil Bateman MBE has recently posted an article on his Facebook page highlighting what a good month April has been for business in Wednesfield, with the announcement of several new developments.
Here’s an overview of Cllr Bateman’s news:
- Tata Steel says it has completed its £15 million transformation of its Steelpark site in Wednesfield, turning it into the UK’s biggest steel processing centre. It is the end of a three-year programme that has seen the workforce at the site grown to nearly 600.
- Clowes Development -Work on the second stage of the hugely successful Bentley Bridge Business Park in Wednesfield has now finished. Bosses say the new units will appeal to smaller warehouse and manufacturing companies, as well as the retail trade counter sector and smaller online retail businesses. Phase one of the park was hailed as a huge success by developers Clowes Developments UK, with all the units occupied.
- Bridges Ventures and Birmingham commercial property company Stoford have joined forces to develop a derelict 18-acre site in Wolverhampton as part of a £20m project.
- The Wednesfield site, which will be renamed Pantheon Park, already has planning permission for 400,000 sq ft of warehouse space and the partners revealed they are already in talks with a number of potential occupiers. The project could also lead to the creation of about 400 permanent jobs in the area and additional employment during construction.
- A canal cruise of 21 Narrow – boats was also announced that will be visiting Wednesfield and bringing new tourists to the Village, next month
