Council to support and create more space for local businesses

Malvern Hills District Council is set to create more space for small businesses with the selling of 0.6 acres of undeveloped land at Tenbury Business Park.

Local business G.E Bright Electrical, based in Tenbury Wells recently submitted an offer of £77,000 for a plot on the park, the sale was then approved at Executive Committee on Tuesday 18 January 2022.

The council will be supporting G.E Bright Electrical, who plan to build as an investment.

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 5.2 acres of undeveloped land, 2.3 acres have been sold and developed. The remainder is being marketed by a local estate agent.

Andrew Bright, Director at GE Bright Electrical Ltd, said: "We appreciate the help and support that Malvern Hills District Council have given us. 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."

Cllr Peter Whatley, Portfolio Holder for Resources at Malvern Hills District Council 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."
