Local business developments are generally aimed towards helping the surrounding area’s economy and are considered as vital to the status and well-being of an area. Local business, such as APH Heating LTD Exeter, both small and large, are watched by local residents, both for their benefits and for their potential cost.
At Clyst Honiton, on the edge of Devon’s capital, Exerton, the major development, stated to for a massive industrial park measuring at about 110,000 m2, to be built alongside the Lidl depot. This massive development is being watched by the locals, as it would contribute massively to the local economy, creating, at least, 1,500 new jobs and adding no less than £90M to the area’s numbers. Currently, the land development at Hayes Farm, is undergoing its second phase.
The land is being developed on behalf of the Church Commissioners for England organization, and is earmarked, slated to be the grounds for the construction of an industrial complex made up of warehouses, offices and corporate space, with the necessary associated infrastructure being built as well. This includes parking and servicing areas. Landscaping and engineering is also underway, including the demolishing of existing infrastructure on the site. The undergoing development is part of the endeavors of the Exeter and East Devon Growth Point, and is situated near the Skypark development, one of comparable size.
As of right now, the details have yet to be filled in, but options exist, with the space available for takeover by a major company.
Alongside this development is the construction of the nearby Skypark, set to be built over a 20-year time span, which is predicted to be capable of providing at least 1.4M ft2 of space for mixed industrial, warehousing and corporate purposes, as well as creating around 6,500 new jobs for the local economy.
An office building is currently under construction in the site, which will amount to an additional 17,142 ft2 of employment space, and will be placed alongside the Ambulance Special Operations Center (ASOC West) and DPD UK’s 60,000 ft2 new distribution centre, built on site. These new developments will not only benefit the local community, but they, alongside local businesses such as APH Heating LTD Exeter, will also gain from the improvements to the road and services infrastructure brought upon by the developments in the region.
