A leading Midlands legal figure has underlined that continued investment in commercial property sites is essential if the economic recovery in Coventry and Warwickshire is to be long term.
Philip Costigan, senior partner at Band Hatton Button on Warwick Road, used the company’s annual commercial property event to highlight the need for continued growth in Coventry and Warwickshire.
More than 150 people including professionals, service providers and clients descended on St Mary’s Guildhall in Coventry for the annual Band Hatton Button Commercial Property Buffet.
Representative from the legal, property, financial and public sectors gathered to discuss the past 12 months and what the future holds for the commercial property market in Coventry and Warwickshire.
Philip Costigan, senior partner at Band Hatton Button on Warwick Road, said: “Our annual buffet was a great success and we were very pleased with the turn-out.
“There is no doubt that we have witnessed a resurgence in the sector over the last 12 months and Coventry and Warwickshire has many reasons to remain optimistic.
“Coventry and Warwickshire was named as the most successful area outside of London in attracting inward investment and there is a real sense of an opportunity for growth.
“There has to be a supply of suitable sites to allow companies to relocate and expand, and that has to be followed by investment. There is a feeling that Coventry and Warwickshire is very much on the up because of number of factors – but that can change if investment stalls.”
