AN HISTORIC Malvern building has been leased to a company which offers space and support to businesses, in particular to start ups.
The Grange has been leased to Bloom.Space which brings an end to five years of uncertainty over the future of the Grange Road building after the Citizens Advice Bureau moved out in 2013.
Malvern Hills District Council signed the lease of the building to Bloom.Space whose members can use the town offices to run their business from and can use their London offices for free if they need a base in the capital too.
Coun David Chambers, leader of Malvern Hills District Council, said: “It’s great that we’ve leased The Grange to a tenant, especially one which will provide much needed office space for businesses.
“Driving the economy is one of our key priorities, so it’s fantastic this agreement supports that.
“We wish Bloom.Space every success and we’re sure they won’t struggle to get interest in such an idyllic location.”
Jack Wratten, founder and chief executive of Bloom.Space, added the Malvern Hills district was an ‘outstanding’ location for inspiring new businesses.
“With the links Bloom.Space has to London and the facilities we’re providing at The Grange, we hope to be home to a great range of start-ups and SME’s creating new jobs and opportunities in the town,” he said.
