Following the granting of planning permission at the end of last year (2016), construction work at Brookfield Park - which fronts on to the A15 from where its steelwork frames are now visible - is underway with occupation of the units on site scheduled for the end of this year (2017). The new Lidl supermarket, which has now been given planning approval, will be on a site nearby.
Screwfix will occupy the largest unit - 4,616 sq ft - at the new park giving the supplier its second trade counter location in Peterborough - its first is in St David's Square, Fengate where it has been established for a number of years.
The remaining two units of 3,541 sq ft each are available to let as single, semi-detached units or combined as one unit of 7,082 sq ft and there are options for a self-contained yard. The two units each have an allocation of 24 car parking spaces, which, according to the agent gives ‘good car-ratios-to-unit size'.
Richard Jones, Director, Barker Storey Matthews -who is based in the agent's Peterborough office and is leading the marketing of Brookfield Park - confirms that there have been good levels of interest registered by other potential showroom or trade counter type occupiers since the commitment of Screwfix to the first unit.
He said, "This area of Peterborough is an established location for industrial and warehouse unit occupiers. Major occupiers include the Royal Mail, Audi and BMW.
"We have always been confident that Brookfield Park would attract interest from occupiers looking for a good location and a high specification for trade counter or showroom use.
"With Screwfix as the anchor tenant, we are positive that the remaining industrial space to let at Brookfield Park will be fully reserved prior to build completion in the autumn."
