About 1,000 jobs are set to be created in Shrewsbury over the next five years under plans to expand one of the town's biggest enterprise parks.

Bosses behind the Shrewsbury Business Park, near Emstrey, are currently busy at work on a 'masterplan' for the next phase of the popular site which will involve building a major extension next to Wenlock Road.

The park has already generated about £20 million of investment and created major employment since it was built and bosses at Shropshire Council are now preparing the next phase of work which is set to create another 1,000 jobs.

It comes after plans were unveiled for a multi-million pound building designed by DGA architects and to be built by Redstart Construction Ltd which will also help transform the site.
