Developer Robert Hitchins Ltd has announced the launch of six acres of new serviced employment land adjoining Stroudwater Business Park, close to Junction 13 of the M5.

Stroudwater Thirteen is the first phase of new employment land being brought forward as part of a major new development on land jointly owned with Redrow which will also include 1,300 new homes and a local centre.

The site has outline planning consent for industrial and warehousing, B1, B2 and B8 uses and has the potential to provide up to 70,000 sq ft of new business space.

The land in Oldends Lane has become available due to the recently-completed infrastructure for the new housing and forms an extension to Stroudwater Business Park where major occupiers include Schlumberger, Renishaw, Dairy Crest, Dentsply and Delphi.

Michael Plimmer, Senior Development Manager at Boddington-based Robert Hitchins said: “Robert Hitchins Ltd has a good track record of delivering new office and industrial development locally, particularly at Stonehouse Business Park where we developed a variety of units for major occupiers including Sartorius, and we are now really excited about working with Redrow on this brand new scheme.

“The site is brilliantly situated near Stonehouse, Stroudwater Business Park and the M5 and we’re very optimistic that there will be strong demand in an area with great transport links and the potential for hundreds of jobs.”
