HOT PROPERTY!

 

Bedford Borough Council now has 99% of its commercial premises either let or under offer with only two premises vacant in the town centre. Commercial property in Bedford is in high demand.

 

The Council owns in the region of 350 commercial properties which are let out to a range of commercial and voluntary organisations. The properties include industrial units, offices, shops in the town centre and on housing estates. Rental income from these properties totals approximately £3.5 million, which contributes toward the cost of running Council services. 

 

Cllr Michael Headley, Portfolio Holder for Finance at Bedford Borough Council said: “More and more people are viewing our vibrant town as an ideal setting for their business. This is partly due to the strength of the local economy, but also because the Council has built a reputation a fair landlord and is signed up to the Commercial Landlords Accreditation Scheme. Many world-class companies are already based here, like Unilever, 3M and Fujifilm, and I am sure many more will come in the future. 

 

Other benefits gained from the commercial estate include:

·         Supporting Economic Development in the borough.

·         Assisting the voluntary sector with premises.

·         Providing leisure and sporting facilities for use by the community.
