Haslingden business park to go under the hammer priced at £1.55m

Rising Bridge

Lancashire County Council is putting its Rising Bridge Business and Enterprise Village development in Haslingden up for auction this month.

The business park, which has a total floor space of 20,500 sq ft has a guide price of £1.55m.

It will feature among more than 100 lots in Pugh’s North West property auction in Manchester on July 16.

The environmentally sustainable scheme, which received a construction sustainability rating of ‘excellent’, includes nine individual two-storey office buildings.

Two of the units have been sold on 125-year leases, with six of the seven remaining units let to local businesses and generating a rental income of £113,000.

Pugh managing director Paul Thompson said: “The business park represents an excellent investment prospect and, not surprisingly, it is generating significant interest among potential buyers.

“The development is in an excellent semi-rural and easily-accessible location in the Rossendale valley, and the cutting-edge environmental technology used to develop the site means that the units are well above industry standards and generate exceptionally low fuel bills.”

The Rising Bridge site is home to a range of businesses including windows and doors firm Safestyle UK and the Fit4Life Health and Fitness gym.
