Cllr Alan Lawther said: “I am very pleased to hear that work has started on the business park. This is a major project and it will have a massively positive impact on this area.
“The Gateway business park will hopefully bring many high value jobs to the local area and provide opportunities for local entrepreneurs to set up their own business.
“The fact that this business park will be situated so close to the International Airport is also good news. It will mean that there is easy access for people who are based overseas and it will be a major factor in attracting foreign investment.
