A PLACE TO

Work

Establishing Whitehill & Bordon as a thriving hub for businesses and innovation is crucial for the town’s future success for generations to come.

WORK SPACES & SUPPORT

Many business zones have already been established around the town and as the regeneration project moves forward, more new work spaces will be delivered alongside the new homes, town centre and leisure spaces. This will include new start-up hubs, film studios, business parks and creative spaces.

Are you part of a local business hub?

Are you a local business owner?

We can help you grow your business at The Shed. Promising produce?
Do you make and create? Are you made for the stage? Share your wares (and your flair) by taking up space with us.

Units are filling up, and we already have a great line-up of local businesses on our books, but there’s space for even more.

We are still looking for other special tenants to add into the mix. If you can’t commit long term, we’re also on the lookout for pop-ups to join us at our regular farmers, produce and craft markets.

Could your business be Shed-shaped? Then please get in touch and contact our venue manager with details on your business.

Are you interested in Business events?

Welcome to SiGNAL BiZHUB, our monthly Business Club event! If your goal is to build relationships with local authorities, developers, landlords and local businesses, to ensure that your town is developed in a way that works for you, you are in the right place!

 

You’ll enjoy relaxed networking activities, keynote speeches (short, entertaining and relevant!) and business insights direct from town centre stakeholders.

 

Our events include games and entertainment to encourage conversation and connection, and you’ll gain access to support, training, introductions and signposting from the lovely SiGNAL team.

Are you a tech-savvy business?

A carefully considered ‘business masterplan’ – This Is Your Town website – has been created to help attract market leading businesses, innovative start-ups and key creative industries.

 

Through the creation of different creative ‘districts’, we are developing the environments for a range of skilled, semi-skilled, service related, technological and creative jobs, building on the town’s heritage of engineering, whilst embracing the high-tech connectivity infrastructure being delivered that will appeal to the growing digital and technology industries and promote social enterprise and entrepreneurship.

Are you looking for a new business space?

The Bordon Enterprise Park has a wide range of existing spaces being used by large businesses for studios and workshops, with units ranging in size from 25,000 to 50,000 sq ft. By the end of 2019, we will also be delivering a selection of distribution and logistics centres that can range from 120,000 to 150,000 sq ft and built to specific pre-let specifications.

 

If you are interested in new space contact Jacqueline Cox on 01420 489 060.

“Lou & Emma have an amazing format, introducing key business with presentations which I found really enlighten-ing. I loved it so much my accountancy company signed up that lunch time. We can’t wait to be a part of this amazing community!” Janet Ireland, Turner & Co

Are you looking to invest?

Digital and technology businesses are incentivised to invest in the town. Through the support of the Enterprise M3 LEP, businesses who invest in new space at Louisburg will receive rate liability holidays as well as affordable space.
