Businesses sought for new Foxglove Gardens development
On 30th August 2017 the District Council revealed its plans to regenerate the former Lawnstone house, bungalow and annex site in Coleford. The scheme introduces some welcome green space into the town centre to create an attractive setting for the mix of high quality housing and commercial units.
The development is named after the ornamental tree chosen to feature, the Foxglove Tree, and is scheduled for completion on the 9th of December 2019, with access for commercial tenants from mid November.
The new business units range from 72 to 80 Square Metres, ideal for start-ups in the retail and service sector. The buildings are designed to low-energy standards, better than current building regulations. Local and low-energy materials have been used wherever possible - brick from Coleford Brick and Tile, Formpave from Forterra block paving and stone from Forest of Dean Stone Firms.
The Council hopes that by bringing vibrant new business into this section of Coleford, it will encourage more activity in the town as a whole. One of the units is under offer as a cafe, with the remaining two available to retail and service businesses.
