Development of commercial units to bring 100 jobs

A development of nine business units is set to offer new commercial space in Warwickshire which could help create up to 100 jobs.

Tom Bromwich says the 42,000 sq ft Southam Park development at Kineton Road Industrial estate in Southam – the first to be brought forward by the Warwickshire Property and Development Group (WPDG) – is “exactly what the region needs to meet growing demand for modern, purpose-built commercial space”.

Coventry-based Bromwich Hardy has been appointed as sole agents by WDPG, Warwickshire County Council’s newly-formed property delivery company, after a competitive tendering process.

“This is a really exciting opportunity for existing local companies and those looking to move into the area to lease space which has been specifically designed to meet the needs of modern businesses.

“The scheme will provide nine units of between 1,900 – 15,000 sq ft on land which has been unused for a number of years and will be particularly suited to small to medium sized enterprises who are either starting up or looking for expansion space.

“Planning permission is already in place, the units will benefit from excellent specification and be highly energy efficient. Each of the units can be fitted out to the tenants’ own requirements and the location at the heart of the nation’s motorway network cannot be beaten.

“The area is desperately short of new commercial units and we are anticipating the highest levels of interest in this site, particularly since the units will be of such high standard and so eco-friendly.

“They are scheduled to be available in the second quarter of 2023 but we would urge anyone interested to contact us without delay.”

Rob Andrews, senior development manager at WPDG, said: “We are delighted to be able to bring this new scheme to market and to be working with Bromwich Hardy in doing so.

“This scheme marks an exciting milestone for us as the first to be signed off, but more importantly meets our key objectives of bringing new investment and jobs to the county and helping our SMEs thrive and expand.”
