Park for agri-food and food manufacturing at Holbeach’s £16 million South Lincolnshire Food Enterprise Zone given green light





A new industrial park for agri-food and food manufacturing businesses has been given the green light for the South Lincolnshire Food Enterprise Zone.

Stirlin Developments was given approval by South Holland District Council for the plans, which would span across more than 22,000 sq ft of land in Holbeach.

The South Lincolnshire Food Enterprise Zone in Holbeach is described as ‘the heart of the UK food valley’ and is a £16 million investment to support the agri-food sector.

The first phase was opened in 2022.

Office and industrial space will be housed at the Stirlin Innovation Park, which aims to celebrate local businesses and champion Lincolnshire’s proud history in the agri-food sector.

A total of 12 units will be constructed, offering a mix of two-storey hybrid office and warehouse space, supporting businesses of all shapes and sizes — whether it be start-ups or internationally recognised brands.

James Kirby, Owner of Stirlin, said: “We’re delighted to receive planning approval and we welcome the recognition from the government and the Greater Lincolnshire LEP.

“The aim of the scheme is to encourage businesses to develop strong working relationships, share ideas, improve productivity and technology, supporting both existing agri-food businesses as well as those looking to invest and relocate.

Mick King, head of economic infrastructure at Lincolnshire County Council, said: “Lincolnshire County Council’s investment in the South Lincolnshire Food Enterprise Zone has enabled the creation of a successful business park to support the agri-tech sector in south Lincolnshire and we are delighted to work with the private sector to ensure the SLFEZ is a success.”
