If you express interest in one of our units (by completing our Industrial Units Enquiry form, or by contacting our Customer Services Team on 01775 761161) and one is available, you will be asked to fill in a Mini Factory Application Form [46kb] to send to us. Please return this form to:Public Buildings TechnicianSouth Holland District CouncilCouncil OfficesPriory RoadSpaldingLincs, PE11 2XE
Completion of this form does not guarantee an industrial unit being available for immediate rental, but you will be put on the waiting list and informed when one becomes available.
It is possible for any prospective tenant to view unit(s) prior to the arrangement being signed. If you wish to view units at any of the five sites, please call the Public Buildings Technician on 01775 761161.
All tenancies are subject to the receipt of three satisfactory references, two of which should be of a financial nature and another of a trade or business nature. The names and addresses of referees must be given on the application form.
The tenancy agreement is set up for a three year term. The tenant may terminate the agreement at any time by giving two months written notice to quit.
No legal fees are required in the preparation of the agreement, but the tenant will be required to pay one month's rent in advance prior to the keys being handed over.
The rent and rates for each unit are payable one month in advance by direct debit.
South Holland District Council runs an incentive scheme which offers business breaks to newly established firms. This scheme means that applicants may be liable for only half rent for the first six months of the tenancy. If a rent incentive is granted, the tenant will not be able to vacate within the first twelve months.
No structural or internal alterations may be undertaken by the tenants without prior written application to the Council. The units will have to be returned to their original specification upon termination of the tenancy.
