Building begins at Morland site at last

The basic steel structure of a large building is seen in an otherwise-empty lot. In the left of a frame is an old factory building. On the right is a large billboard showing an M logo with “Morlands Enterprise Park” below, and some more text too small to read. Further away on the right is a tall chimney.

White steel went up in early July for the first new buildings on the site of the old tanneries: nine speculative high-tech units, for light industry on the ground floor and offices above. Priority Sites is the developer. Simultaneously Mendip Housing is refurbishing the cottages in Beckery Old Road.
