Car dealership Marshall Motor Group has submitted a planning application for a new Jaguar Land Rover dealership on Teal Park.
The 40,000 sq ft building will occupy a 3.2-acre site on the Whisby Road frontage of the Teal Park development, just off the Lincoln bypass. The planning application shows a landmark, modern building with showroom space for 18 new Jaguars and Land Rovers, new vehicle handover bays, offices, workshops and parts stores.
Dan Race, Development Director with Teal Park developers Taylor Lindsey, said ‘We look forward to seeing the planning permission approved and the build underway, this will be a great addition to our Teal Park development and bodes well for attracting further high-profile occupiers in the future’. He added ‘This will be the largest new motor showroom development Lincoln has seen and shows the confidence that major national occupiers are showing in Lincoln as a trading location’.
Sam Elkington, Director with agents Lambert Smith Hampton, commented ‘The prominence and profile that this scheme will bring to the site is enormous. This expansion of one of the country’s major motor franchises will be of obvious benefit to the city and shows how Lincoln continues to develop as a major regional centre. We have a number of other opportunities under discussion at Teal Park and are of the view that this relocation of Jaguar Land Rover will be of significant benefit to the area’.
Teal Park is already home to 25 varied businesses. The largest occupier to date is the gas turbine servicing division of Siemens who occupy 135,000 sq ft and are currently constructing a 70,000 sq ft warehouse and office extension. Further land is available for development, including Whisby Road frontage plots adjacent the proposed Jaguar Land Rover dealership. Dan Race commented ‘Given the high profile of a new Jaguar Land Rover dealership we are confident that we will soon be progressing exciting schemes on the adjoining land’.
