Property


 Bringing buildings back to life

 

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA P1030250 - for newsletter P1030251

 

 

 Acorn Business Park in 2014 and after renovation in 2016

 

The surroundings within which we live and work have a major impact on us all. Research has found that under-used or derelict buildings encourage crime, erode self-esteem and create health issues.

 

Renovating existing properties can make a big difference in an area: improving looks, helping local business and increasing property values.

 

We are doing this in an enterprising way. We operate a commercial property business that takes on neglected property, refurbishes it, and rents it out to return it into economic or community use. An example of this is the Old Doctors’ Surgery on James Street previously derelict, boarded up and subject to repeated vandalism. We purchased and renovated it and now lease it to a project which works closely with people at risk of hardship.

 

We also rent our properties to businesses. But we are a landlord with a difference.

We offer:

  • flexible terms
  • affordable rents
  • free business support
  • We offer these extras to enable us to use our property to help nurture local businesses.
