The two of the three units are now fully occupied providing employment and vibrancy to the area. The third unit will become available soon.
The site preparation and the infrastructure are in place for phases 2 and 3.
Phase 2 provides for another 3,000 square feet of enterprise units (double the size of stage 1). This can be seen in the above illustration. However work on the next phases will not commence until Phase one is debt free as.there is still an outstanding three year bank loan to be repaid.
A new printed version of the directory is planned for the Summer of 2017. This will be delivered to all households in the Parish as well as being available from various other local outlets.
