£5.5m infrastructure works complete at former Vesuvius Works, Worksop

Property developer and investor CEG and their agents were joined by Bassetlaw Council and D2N2, the Local Enterprise Partnership to celebrate the completion of the infrastructure works and submission of the first phase of industrial works which will herald the regeneration of the former Vesuvius brickworks site on Sandy Lane.

The £5.5million package of work has delivered a major new roundabout at the entrance to the site, access road into the site and remediation of the whole site ready for development. This was enabled through a grant award from D2N2 to kick start this brownfield development.

Asda is now on site with its new 70,000 sq ft foodstore and petrol filling station under construction, which will create 200 new retail jobs. The store is set to open in the new year.

Will Martin, Development Manager at CEG, said: “It’s great to see this site coming back to life. We have already created construction jobs and training and apprenticeship opportunities, and with Asda on site this will create circa 200 permanent jobs when it opens next year.

“The first phase of the employment units will establish Vesuvius as the prime industrial and business location in Worksop, the application proposes over 40,000 sq ft of industrial and business space. The speculative scheme will be the largest of its scale in Worksop for several years and shows CEG’s commitment to the location. We have been encouraged by the interest in the site and we consider that this will provide much needed employment space in the region.”

Cllr Jo White, Cabinet Member for Economic Development at Bassetlaw District Council, said: “It has been a major and long-held ambition of this Council to bring the Vesuvius site back into use and through partnership working create jobs, business opportunities and more choice for residents.

“Thanks to CEG, D2N2 and Asda, the first phase of this impressive development is rapidly progressing, and we look forward to appraising plans for the rest of the site, in addition to working with Asda and other future employers when it comes to job creation and apprenticeships.”

Tom Goshawk, D2N2 Head of Capital Programmes, said: “It’s great to see the programme of works already completed by CEG turning the Vesuvius Brickworks into a thriving retail and business park capable of boosting the local economy, bringing new jobs and homes to this part of Northern Nottinghamshire.

“The Vesuvius scheme highlights D2N2’s commitment to prosperity and productivity for the whole of Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire.”
