Mark Edwards, managing director at AC Lloyd Commercial, said this development would help Southam’s business community to continue to thrive.

He said: “We’re looking forward to working with Stratford District Council and the local community to bring forward this exciting employment opportunity on a strategically well-located site.

“The feedback from the pre-application consultation has on the whole been positive. We have amended the proposals to address a number of the concerns that were raised.

“The development would create a significant number of temporary and permanent jobs and strengthen the local economy.

“Sites such as this would be perfect for small and medium businesses wanting to expand or move from a home-based environment into a commercial park along with all the associated benefits that brings.”

The planning application is expected to be discussed by Stratford District’s Council’s planning committee later this year.
