Agency & Commercial Development
Wiltshire Council continues to attract new businesses to its SME-focused business park in Ludgershall, with four new recent lettings on Brydges Court bringing the scheme to nearly 90% occupancy.
Brydges Court is the second phase of development at Castledown Business Park, a 33 acre employment site just outside Ludgershall developed by Wiltshire Council to help support and diversify the local economy of Ludgershall, Tidworth and surrounding areas.
Brydges Court was developed in 2014 following the success of the first phase Fitz Gilbert Court. Many units have now been let for a second time as the original occupiers have expanded to new larger premises.
The latest companies to take space on the park are Native Agricultural Products, Direct Transport, Aquadam and Ecotech Ventilation.
Native Agricultural Products, which specialises in the production, storage and distribution of herbs and spices, relocated from Cirencester to lease the 711 sq ft Unit 7d while temporary flood barrier company AquaDam has relocated from elsewhere on the park to take the 2,494 sq ft Unit 5d. Direct Transport who specialise in furniture removals to Portugal and Spain have taken occupation of Unit 5b comprising 1,998 sq ft.
The latest company to join is Ecotech Ventilation which agreed terms just prior to the lockdown and now occupy Unit 6b which is 4,940 sq ft. The company, which supplies custom designed heat recovery units across the UK, required expansion space and has relocated from Andover.
Just two units remain and are available on new leases.
James Gregory, partner at Alder King’s Swindon office and letting agent for Wiltshire Council, commented: “Focused on attracting start-up, micro and SME businesses, Castledown Business Park has enjoyed a high occupancy rate since its start in 2008. It is a good barometer of the local economy and it’s always gratifying to see new businesses moving to the Park. We currently have very strong interest in both the remaining units and hope to have the whole scheme fully let shortly.”
Castledown Business Park provides office and light industrial units through two schemes. Fitz Gilbert Court comprises 21 small industrial and office units while Brydges Court provides a further 15 units.
Occupiers also benefit from the Castledown Business Centre and Enterprise Network Building which provide additional facilities to support tenants and other businesses such as training, conference and meeting spaces.
