THE green light has been given for a �6m business park in Letchworth GC that could create up to 60 jobs.
North Herts District Council (NHDC) has granted planning permission to St Modwen, the UK's leading regeneration specialists, to build the park on the 4.5 acre site of the old power station in Works Road.
St Modwen says it will begin work on the project by the end of the year.
The proposed development will include 15 office, light industrial and warehouse buildings covering 77,000 sq ft.

"We have already received a good level of interest from both local and national companies who recognise Letchworth GC is a good growth area and a key employment source with good communication links.
"We hope to start on the site this year as soon as interested companies start to take up space on a freehold or leasehold basis. Encouragingly, we have already received a good degree of interest."
Since acquiring the site in July last year, St Modwen has used highly sustainable development techniques to clear the site and has been crushing materials from the demolished power station and reusing it as hardcore to level the site in preparation for construction work to begin.
