Construction work is set to start on a new enterprise centre with space for up to 32 businesses in Chesterfield.
The Northern Gateway Enterprise Centre will be located on part of the Holywell Cross (Donut) car park.
Chesterfield Borough Council appointed local contractor Robert Woodhead to build the new development for businesses after the go-ahead was granted in February 2019.
The development is estimated to take 12 months to build.
Cllr Terry Gilby, Chesterfield Borough Council’s cabinet member for economic development, said: "The new centre will allow those based there to have access to in-house support services to encourage and nurture start-up and early stage businesses in a wide variety of industry sectors.
"The contractor appointed is based in the East Midlands, and as with all our contractors we will work with them in the support of the local labour clause promoting the use of a local supply chain and the employment of local people.
"The new centre will be the third managed workspace in the council’s portfolio, and we are seeking to build on the success of our well let Tapton and Dunston Innovation Centres."
Leo Woodhead, business development director at Woodhead Group, added: "Woodhead Group is delighted to be taking part in this exciting opportunity collaborating with Chesterfield Borough Council.
"Our partnership will allow Woodhead Group to grow and develop our business within the local community."
