MORE than 35 jobs could be created after a haulage yard in Lawford was sold.

Tendring Council’s cabinet has agreed to dispose of the piece of waste ground at South Strand for the second time.

The original sale fell through after the bidder was unable to complete the purchase following a bidding process last year.

Now the owner of a neighbouring piece of land has come up with an improved offer for the site, which the council has accepted.

He is looking to build two industrial units at the site, which will be subject to planning permission being submitted and granted.

Mick Page, leader of the council, said: "It will mean new jobs coming to Lawford – it is a good scheme and hope that it all goes ahead."
