A set of business units said to be one of the most energy-efficient commercial premises in the UK has been officially opened in Long Sutton.

Canebuzo (Carbon Neutral Business Zone), seven business units designed to retain heat and generate energy from natural resources, was opened by Lincolnshire County Council chairman, Coun Bill Aron, in front of a number of invited guests.

The units, off Gedney Road, are available to small businesses across South Holland, with the attraction of zero to low energy costs and access to the nearby A17.

One of the units has been taken by Trish Lowe, owner of Jello Nails and Beauty, who said: “I think it’s brilliant that there’s something like this in the area.

“It gives businesses that helping hand they need with energy bills being low and it helps the community by having facilities nearby, rather than people having to go to Peterborough or King’s Lynn.”

Coun Chris Brewis, county councillor for Sutton Elloe, said: “I’m delighted with the development and I think it will help keep the Long Sutton area on the map.

”I hope it’s advertised widely as it can help us get local and national recognition.”
