Location, location, location is the driver behind leading new homes developer, Barratt and David Wilson Homes Cambridgeshire taking a lease on an office building in Peterborough, according to commercial property agency Barker Storey Matthews.

Barratt and David Wilson Homes’ new office location is a two storey, 450 sq m (4,844 sq ft) building in The Office Village complex of Cygnet Park in Peterborough’s Hampton business district. 

Barker Storey Matthews was the sole agent under instruction to let the office building which is located on Forder Way which has good access to Peterborough’s Parkway Road system and onward to the A1(M) and the city centre.

The leading housebuilder wanted to establish a new office base to cover Cambridgeshire - which it views as one of the country’s strongest growth areas and worthy of a dedicated office in which to serve it.

Adam Knight, Operations Director, Barratt and David Wilson Homes Cambridgeshire, said, “The patch we will be covering from our new office at Cygnet Park is all of Cambridgeshire, plus Stamford to the north, south to St Neots and sweeping west across to Thrapston.

“Peterborough was the logical place to locate an office as it has such strong transport links giving access to serve this growth area.”

Richard Jones, Director, Barker Storey Matthews, added, “For companies who’ve not been located in Peterborough before, there is no doubt that the city’s road network and onward access to all the compass points of the UK is a major attraction.

“Transport links are one of Peterborough’s most valuable commercial assets - something property agents here never take for granted.”
