High demand for space at Anson Business Park, Gloucester as area expands

Glos Airport CGI masterplan for CGX Connect at Gloucestershire Airport[1]

Bruton Knowles has completed the letting of 15,000 sq ft at 25b Anson Business Park at Staverton Gloucester, bringing both direct marketing company Alpha Response Ltd and warehousing and fulfilment company The Fulfilment Warehouse under the same roof.

Anson Business Park is at the centre of a substantial amount of proposed new development.

In February, Tewkesbury Borough Council approved an application by Gloucestershire Airport for a new business park, on new commercial development on land between Anson and Meteor business parks. The park will be known as CGX Connect.

The Planning Committee members voted to support the plans for CGX Connect, which will generate around 30,000 sqm of gross floor space for commercial-use with potential to deliver around 1,520 new employment opportunities.

The new 8.5-hectare park will sit on land to the north of the Gloucestershire Airport site and replace the northern end of the north/south runway.

GFirst LEP will provide £1.885 Million in ‘Growth Deal’ funding to support the infrastructure required to deliver the new development.

And in October last year, Clarkson Evans, the UK’s leading electrical contractor for new homes, announced it had bought three and a half acres of land on Anson Business Park.  The land was formerly occupied by Dowty Propellers, which moved to a purpose-built factory at Gloucester Business Park last year.

The site is next to Cheltenham Road East, one of the main routes connecting Gloucester and Cheltenham and is next door to Clarkson Evans’ existing premises at Anson Business Park, which form part of the company’s current headquarters, along with offices nearby at Meteor Business Park.
