|Europarc - there are plans for North East Lincolnshire's flagship business park to have a sister development between Grimsby and Immingham|
AMBITION plans are being drawn up for a new "europarc-type" business park to be developed on the outskirts of Grimsby.
The focus of North East Lincolnshire Council's regeneration team has fallen on 84 hectares of land adjacent to the A180 and Stallingborough interchange.
If the 20-year project goes ahead, hundreds of jobs could be created - both in the construction stage and after completion.
The authority has not yet made its plans public but preliminary discussions have taken place with the North East Lindsey Drainage Board about site preparation.
At its annual meeting - held on Tuesday (Nov 8) at The Amethyst hotel in East Halton - the board's chief executive, Trevor Vessey, revealed that the first phase of the project was likely to consist of office accommodation, with warehousing and storage to follow.
"I understand the proposed development will be similar to europarc,"he said.
