The Worthing commercial property sector remains in a state of acute shortage, with very limited space available being snapped up, according to property consultants Stiles Harold Williams.
Companies looking to relocate to the town are having to be turned away, as there is nowhere to accommodate them.
Fortunately there is some remaining capacity which has been occupied, such as nearly 2,000 sq ft of offices in Shelley Road and 3,347 sq ft of industrial at the Timberlaine Trading Estate.
Partner Duncan Marsh of SHW Agency Division said: “Space which we previously thought would be converted into residential is currently being let – which is an indicator of undersupply. Anyone with available space in the town is urged to contact us.
“There is a chronic need for speculative building across the southern coastal strip, something we hope the council and other strategic bodies will address very soon.”
