A great place to do business
A great place to do business
Establishing Whitehill & Bordon as a thriving hub for businesses and innovation is crucial for the town’s future success for generations to come.
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.
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.
Already available to businesses and job seekers making their home in Whitehill & Bordon are:
