Country estates across Yorkshire and the Humber are responding to an increase in commercial activity.Excellent broadband connectivity, easier commuting and high quality accommodation is leading more and more businesses to relocate to rural office space and expanding occupiers to stay put where they can.
Nicholas Broadway from Bruton Knowles’ Northallerton Office said: “The improvement in the rural offering has led increasingly to businesses wanting to re-locate from the town to less urban surroundings.
“We have several rural estates and business parks with a range of units to let on flexible terms many of which have resulted from businesses thriving and expanding in to bigger units on the same site.
“There is a wide range of units to let from south of York to Newcastle and from the Pennines to the East Coast - all set in highly attractive areas offering a variety of Grade A accommodation to suit all business needs.”
Bruton Knowles Estate Management specialist Mark Ludiman added: “There will be many rural businesses that will be relieved to see this upturn in commercial activity.
“Commodity prices have hit a real low and those businesses that have diversified will be glad they did. We’re finding more and more clients asking for advice on appealing business rates, improving planning consents and looking at other ways that they can add value not only to their Estates but also to help their business occupiers.”
Nicholas Broadway is currently handling enquiries on a range of rural and commercial space throughout Yorkshire and the North East between 250 sqft and 14,000 sqft.
