100 New Jobs For Weymouth
12:01pm 5th September 2013
100 new jobs could be coming to Weymouth with the expansion of Link Business Park.
DJ Property has announced to Wessex FM that planning permission for Phase 2 has been submitted.
This will be for 7 units for local small to medium sized businesses looking to expand.
Four national companies have taken up units in Phase 1 with a 5th to be announced shortly.
Mickey Jones, Chief Executive of DJ Property, the company developing Weymouth's newest business park, said he was delighted to announce the second phase of the development
Mickey commented: 'Phase 2 of Link Park will be constructed in a slightly different way from the first phase. The second phase will consist of 7 units measuring between 1,500 sq ft and 2,500 sq ft and will be particularly attractive to local small to medium sized businesses looking to expand their business into new commercial space. The units will be of market leading quality and are very visible from the busy Chickerell Link Road, just what occupiers are demanding".
He added: 'Phase 1 has let very well and I am very proud of the companies who have chosen to come to Link Park as they can see that DJ Property is a trusted, professional developer of commercial property that builds long-term relationships. Phase 2 will build on these relationships with local businesses as we have always supported successful local businesses. What's good for South Dorset is good for us. It is hoped that Phase 2 of Link Park will attract up to 100 jobs when fully let."
Subject to successful planning application, building will commence at the end of 2013 and the units should be ready for occupation by Spring 2014.
