Gemma Hughes, who is Director of Dowlas UK Ltd – the enabling developer for the site, comments: “The opportunities are enormous here and there is a hive of activity surrounding the site.
“Knightstone’s new offices will be completed soon, and we’re delighted to see that work has now started to build a new a hungry horse pub courtesy of Greene King.”
On who will fill the existing plots, Gemma comments: “Much of the interest for the vacant plots is coming from organisations outside of North Somerset looking to re-locate and create jobs. There have been some very interesting names but unfortunately these can’t be revealed at this moment.”
