Awarded £83,622 (40% of the total project costs of £209,055) of LEADER funding from Making it Local towards the refurbishment of three barns into a business centre offering office space for 4 businesses and flexible meeting space.
Lorimer Consulting Limited was established in 2014 after trading as a sole trader for 10 months, and is owned and managed by Chris Lorimer. The company has 1.5 FTEs staff.
Currently Lorimer Consulting Limited is run from Chris’ home, which provides limitations in terms of expanding business support activities. Chris has recently established the South West Growth Service business, with the specific aim of offering business support across the South West. The development of the barns into a fully serviced business centre will complement these businesses.
This project will create 5 FTEs jobs, as well as supporting local businesses to develop and grow.
