Further expansion plans confirmed for Somerset business park

Taunton-based commercial property specialists Summerfield Developments have announced plans to build a further ‘Enterprise Unit’ at Wellington’s Westpark 26.

It is anticipated that building of the new Enterprise Unit – which will provide a further fourteen units and a storage compound – will commence in June or July, following the granting of planning permission. The developers have already experienced considerable success with the popular commercial site, with all twenty six units within the first two blocks now sold.

Duncan Brown, marketing agent for Greenslade Taylor Hunt, says: “The combination of being strategically located adjacent to Junction 26 of the M5 motorway and providing high quality units on a new business park continues to attract occupiers.

We have already had a great deal of interest in units within the new block from businesses recognising the potential of owning a property from which they can not only work but also look upon as an investment for the future”.

Ben Trickey, Senior Development Surveyor for Summerfield Developments, adds:

“We’re pleased to announce these plans as a result of the success already experienced at Westpark 26 so far. Thanks in large part to its prime location in the heart of the South West, we now have a strong mix of occupiers and successful businesses located at the park, and this planned expansion will give even more companies the opportunity to grow and thrive in this business environment”.

Adjacent to Chelston Business Park in Wellington, Somerset, Westpark 26 will ultimately total 46,450 sq m (500,000 sq ft) of mainly industrial and warehouse facilities. The site currently boasts a hotel and pub along with workshops and starter units, and other proposed uses for the business park are trade counters, offices and child daycare, along with car showrooms and a veterinary clinic.
