A NELSON firm has applied to build a new car park at its Lomeshaye Industrial Estate headquarters.

Fresh food business Wellock’s wants to convert what is currently agricultural land at the rear of its hub, in Pendleside.

The move would increase the number of spaces at the site from 23 to 70.

Wellock’s said: “With this expansion we will also be adding staff and there for the extra car park will be essential to us.

“The aim is to bring more business to the area, increasing our work force and customer base simultaneously.”
