New start-up industrial units for Motherwell

Work has started on site this summer (2020) on the construction of new industrial start up units in the heart of Motherwell.

Alongside North Lanarkshire Properties LLP (NLP) and with support through the Scottish Government's Regeneration Capital Grant Fund (RCGF) Programme, we will create 14 modern, start-up units on an area of derelict land in Orbiston Street.

We received a grant of £1.74 million from the RCGF programme and will provide the remaining £611,724 to deliver the project.

One of the units will be the base for an entrepreneurship partnership with New College Lanarkshire, providing rent free accommodation and grants to support students to establish new businesses.

Businesses moving into the new units will have access to a range of marketing, employability and entrepreneurial support from our business teams. The units are expected to be ready for lease by spring 2021.

In light of the impacts that the Covid-19 crisis continues to have on town centres and local communities, we hope that this new project will bring positivity and economic growth to a key central area within Motherwell, creating a platform for growth for start-up businesses that may require additional support in the wake of the crisis.
