MALVERN Hills District Council is set to create more space for small businesses by selling 0.6acres of undeveloped land on Tenbury Business Park.
Local firm GE Bright Electrical, based in Tenbury Wells, has submitted a £77,000 offer for a plot on the park and the sale was approved by the council’s executive committee.
The council will be supporting GE Bright Electrical, which plans to build as an investment in the local economy.
Malvern Hills District Council owns industrial units and employment land at Tenbury Business Park, in partnership with Worcestershire County Council and Homes England.
The council is also responsible for the management of the industrial units together with negotiating sales and agreeing terms for the disposal of the land.
Of the original 5.2acres of undeveloped land, 2.3acres have been sold and developed. The remainder is being marketed by a local estate agent.
Andrew Bright, Director at GE Bright Electrical Ltd, said the firm appreciated the help and support Malvern Hills District Council had given it.
“Our aim is to build a range of modern efficient commercial units, in various flexible sizes for local business use, whilst being mindful of the location and environment.
“This project will enhance the business park and integrate with the existing developments on the site.”
Coun Peter Whatley, Malvern Hills District Council’s Portfolio Holder for Resources, said: “Developments like this are really beneficial to the smaller, local businesses in the district, supporting business expansion and growth not only helps create additional jobs in the area but also has a positive economic impact.”
