The green light for a business park in Swadlincote is hoped to bring with it hundreds jobs in the town. PMW Property now has permission for the 10 commercial units to be built on a site extending to almost 3.5 acres and said it has already received "much interest" in the buildings.

The Derbyshire developer has acquired the final plot on the Tetron Point business park which could create hundreds of jobs when complete.

The new development is bordered by William Nadin Way and Cadeley Hill Road and is be the final phase of the Tetron Point business park on the former coal board site.

South Derbyshire District Council has approved the plans, submitted on behalf of PMW by architects Isherwood McCann. The plans are for a 4,500 square metre building, which includes 10 units ranging in size from 374 square metres to 520 square metres, for light and general industrial usage and storage.

The site is opposite to the PMW-owned Optimum Business Park with a range of serviced offices.

PMW boss Mike Wrigley said: "We have already completed pre-development deals with two major national companies who are looking for long-term commitments in Swadlincote. There has been a great deal of interest in the remaining eight units.

"South Derbyshire is a location where we have been keen to acquire sites for a long time. We are very much looking forward to working in the area.

"This will be an important development for the economic growth of Swadlincote, complementing the existing businesses in the area. We have gone out to tender for the construction phase and, subject to conditions, we expect work to begin on site in October of this year."

The developer said that landscaping and trees around the perimeter will reduce the visual impact of the development which is inside the National Forest. The external finishes will ensure that the building and site are "of a high quality", contemporary appearance with timber cladding sympathetic to the local environment, and will enhance the site as a whole.

Bosses said Tetron Park is an ideal site as it is situated close to town centre amenities and is close to the A444 trunk road offering access to Burton and Ashby together with major road links along the A42/M42 and the A38.
