We’re developing an extensive range of business schemes over 42 acres of land in north-east Bexhill – the most significant business development area in the county.
This land can accommodate up to 500,000 sq ft of business floor space across two sites. It’s been made accessible for the first time by Combe Valley Way (formerly known as the Bexhill-Hastings Link Road) – shown by this map. East Sussex County Council completed this road in December 2015. For more information about the role of Combe Valley Way in the economic development programme, click here.
The north-east Bexhill business developments have the potential to support a great many jobs by enabling local firms to expand and attracting companies from outside the area, so creating a thriving new business community. Combe Valley Way provides an easy route for employees in Hastings and Bexhill to travel to work at companies based there. Economic experts Genecon forecast that it will boost the local economy by £1 billion over the next 25 years.
Bexhill Enterprise Park
We’re creating the Bexhill Enterprise Park in stages, with our attention on the area south-east of Combe Valley Way in the first stage.
We’re currently developing the approx 25,000 sq ft High Weald House there – a set of offices from approx 600 sq ft upwards pre-letting now on highly flexible lease terms. See artist’s impression below.
Construction of the steel frame began in April 2018 and the offices should be available to occupy from spring 2019.
High Weald House will stand next to Glovers House, the first property we developed on the Enterprise Park. A high-quality property also around 25,000 sq ft, Glovers House was fully let on completion in early December 2015 to expanding company Park Holidays UK.
In addition, we have sites available which can accommodate from 2,000 up to 220,000 sq ft of business premises.
In terms of connecting roads, we’ve developed Mount View Street to access the Enterprise Park from both Combe Valley Way and, from the south, Bexhill’s Wrestwood Road.
To the north-west of Combe Valley Way, we’re also developing the North Bexhill Access Road, for which we gained planning consent in February 2016. The North Bexhill Access Road is designed to open up further land for a second phase of development and we’ve made substantial progress in building this road so far. You can see original details of this road scheme, as presented to the community in a consultation exercise, here.
We’d welcome hearing from any companies interested in pre-letting offices in High Weald House or in sites in this area. Please get in touch.
