Construction of the 12-unit Discovery Business Park, in Yaxley, is expected to start on July 1.

The park will be made up of purpose-built terraced, semi-detached and detached industrial/warehouse units which will range in size from 1,650 sq ft to 6,600 sq ft. The units are suitable for warehouse, workshop, trade counter or showroom use.
