Waste management company agrees one of largest office lettings this year

A waste management company has agreed one of the largest office lettings this year in north Birmingham as it continues to expand its business nationally.

A 10-year lease on 10,070 sq ft of office space at Unit 4, Newlands Court, Burntwood Business Park, Staffordshire, has been agreed by the company (which did not want to be named).

Burley Browne acted as joint agent with JLL Birmingham on behalf of landlord Gladman Commercial Properties.

Steven Hannaford, senior surveyor at Sutton Coldfield-based Burley Browne, said: “Unit 4 Newlands Court offers high quality offices, having been recently refurbished and, with excellent transport links across the region, it is ideal for office occupiers.

“We are very pleased to have completed the letting, working alongside JLL. At more than 10,000 sq ft, it is one of the biggest in the north Birmingham/South Staffordshire region and adds to the growing evidence that, despite what we saw during the lockdowns, occupiers still very much see the office as the place of work for the future. Working from home doesn’t suit everyone and so the office is still very important to the majority of businesses and employees.”
