FOR SALE / TO LET - Unit 1 at Copcut Business Park, Droitwich, WR97LU - For more details click here
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.
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:
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.
