New Wick Business Park Is Underway
The new Wick Business Park has begun in earnest. The initial phase
of the contract worth £1 million in total will cover 12.5 acres at
Lochshell and completion is due near the end of 2001.
The work is being carried out by John Gunn & Sons of Lybster
following the award of the contract by Caithness & Sutherland
Enterprise. The site is expected to open up opportunities for
local businesses as well as for external companies looking for excellent
facilities in the northern Highlands.
Positioned on the outskirts of Wick it has the benefit of being less
than five minutes from the airport and with modern telecommunications
now available with fibre optic cabling and training facilities at Thurso
College offering employers the chance to get training for employees via
the new computer suite recently installed.
The new facilities will be a welcome boost to the area providing the
most up to date premises for new job creation as well as helping local
businesses to locate in modern surroundings and provide for expansion.
