Jobs boom for Cambridgeshire
About 150 new jobs are expected to be created in Cambridgeshire as a result of the expansion of a major business park.

The Lancaster Way Business Park in Ely has been granted planning permission by East Cambridgeshire Council for four new units, potentially helping to ease commuter traffic closer to the city, reports the Cambridge Evening News.

Howard Whetstone of Grovemere Property, which owns the Lancaster Way Business Park, said that Ely is becoming increasingly attractive to expanding companies because of its rapid population growth.

"Ely is a pleasant place to live and we have had an upsurge in the number of houses built. Commercial growth has not gone along as fast, but we are now finding that businesses are keen to come here," he commented.

A nearby site at Angel Drove will also create 500 new jobs when it undergoes a £4 million redevelopment - bringing even more opportunities for local residents.

Earlier this month, the Cambridge Evening News also reported that about 40 new jobs are set to be created in the region when a Toys R Us store opens in Cambridge next month.
