The Site

The proposed Copcut Business Park site is located at land between Roman Way and Copcut Boulevard and is part of the wider Copcut Rise residential development which includes allocations for retail space and employment uses.

Given the allocation for the site was made some time ago, Hinton Group has taken expert advice from Worcestershire Property Consultants, GJS Dillon and Harris Lamb, in order to evolve a mix of uses that responds to the current market and ensures that the proposals can be delivered within the short term and create new jobs.

Advice from property consultants has identified that whilst the original allocation envisaged a convenience store within the residential area of the development, marketing to retailers showed very limited demand in this location. In contrast, the proposed retail opportunity at Copcut Business Park has received a wide range of interest from the major convenience retailers.

It has also been advised that the new employment space provided locally at Salwarpe Business Park has largely absorbed the demand for smaller commercial units aimed at start-up businesses. Larger commercial units have also recently been provided at Droitwich Business Park.

The Proposals

Hinton Group’s proposals for Copcut Business Park are the result of a long and detailed two-year process to evolve an exciting and deliverable mix of complementary retail and commercial uses, comprising:

  • A modern Sainsbury’s Local store providing a fantastic range of products so that local people have access to everyday essentials for cooking at home and for food on the go, without having to travel further afield.
  • A Costa Coffee Drive-Thru, providing coffee on the go as well as café seating for businesses and residents.
  • An electric vehicle charging station providing ultra-rapid charging points for eight electric vehicles, to be provided by Motor Fuel Group (MFG), the largest independent forecourt operator in the UK.
  • 58 parking spaces serving the Sainsbury’s Local and Costa Coffee Drive-Thru, including eight ultra-rapid charging spaces.
  • Two industrial units (Units 1 & 2). Both units provide space for mid-size local businesses to expand within the local area, thereby freeing up smaller units elsewhere in the market for smaller businesses to occupy.
  • Unit 2 to be occupied by Squab Storage, a small-scale self-storage company offering small scale storage, office and meeting space solutions for private individuals and local SME businesses.
  • Creating circa 175 FTE new jobs for local people in a wide range of retail and commercial roles.
  • A site access from Copcut Boulevard utilising the existing junction already provided, as well as new pedestrian and cycle access from within the Copcut Rise development.

Given the confirmed demand, Hinton Group are committed to delivering the commercial uses speculatively so that prospective expanding local occupiers can move into completed and modern facilities, thereby freeing up smaller employment premises within the local area. The proposals will therefore be able to be delivered in the short term, subject to planning.
