Prime Site Up For Grabs

A prime site on the entrance to a new business park in Stratford-upon-Avon has come back onto the market, after the original buyer decided to relocate elsewhere.

Stratford-on-Avon District Council is about to start work on the Shottery Brook Business Park on the north west outskirts of the town, where some 3 acres forming the gateway to the site have become available for business development.

Members of the council's Management Committee were told that the Finelist Group no longer wished to relocate to the business park. Stratford-based Finelist had been granted planning permission for an extensive office complex which was to form their new headquarters.

The remainder of the 14 acre site has already been allocated for a high technology research and development complex to be built by Color Estates.

"It is disappointing that Finelist will not be going to the new business park, but I understand that they still intend to relocate within the Stratford district,"

said Cllr Jean Holder, chairman of the Management Committee.

"I am happy that this council has done everything possible to assist Finelist, but we regret their decision not to proceed. However, this should not affect the business park in any way, as we have had considerable interest from many developers.

"The unexpected availability of the plot previously allocated to Finelist will, I'm sure, easily be sold, as it will form the prime gateway to this business park. The site will now be put on the open market by our agents, Bigwood."

Work is due to start in April on the first road improvements to the site, which will be the extension of Timothy's Bridge Road. It will eventually link into a new roundabout at Bishopton Lane, which is also being improved to provide a through route from the business park onto the A46. The road infrastructure, on which Stratford-on-Avon District Council will be spending over 2m, is expected to be complete towards the end of this year.

Some 1,600 residents and business around the site were sent a newsletter earlier this week explaining the project and the works that will be carried out.
