Investing in property in this way will also help us generate income which we can then plough back into services.Councillor Byron Rhodes, ,

A new £5.5m industrial park in Coalville that’s set to create 120 jobs has been officially opened. Apollo Court Business Park will boost business in the town by supporting start-ups and firms looking to expand.
BSP Consulting provided geotechnical, civil and structural engineering services for Apollo Court Business Park, built by Willmott Dixon for Leicestershire County Council.
It has created a range of high-spec industrial units ranging from 1,000 to 9,000 sq. ft. which will support start-ups and firms looking to expand.
The venture is part-funded by a £2.4m allocation from the Local Growth Fund, a pot of government funding awarded to the Leicester and Leicestershire Enterprise Partnership Limited (LLEP) for projects that benefit the local area and economy.
The scheme is part of the LLEP’s strategic economic plan which aims to create 45,000 extra jobs, reduce unemployment by 50 per cent, support 15,000 businesses to expand and help 1,000 start-ups – Coalville is earmarked as a priority area.
