Rising demand for commercial accommodation is keeping Plymouth property specialists Bruton Knowles busy - tracking down remaining units on the city outskirts.
Mark Slade from the firm’s Lockyer Street office has now let four out of five units at the Moorlands Trading Estate at Saltash and has offers on the last remaining unit.
The light industrial units vary from 1,410 to 3,476 sq ft.
Mark Slade said increasing demand from online sales channels and niche e-retailers had eaten in to the city’s key logistics and distribution locations.
He said: “With next to nothing in the way of ‘new builds’ to choose from out of town locations are back in favour. There is very little, if any, stock available in Saltash at the moment and firms looking to move or expand in the area will need to move quickly to snap up remaining stock.”
Just off the A38, five miles from Plymouth, Moorlands serves a key sector of the gateway into Cornwall’s commercial market.
“Moorlands is ideally situated beside the main road network with quick connections to the wider network. The range of units offers good flexibility for firms needing to move or expand.
“The local industrial market is attracting a broad range of occupiers and investors buoyed by the rapidly improving economic backdrop and greater external demand for UK exports.
