A BUSINESS hub on the outskirts of Whitchurch is building towards its future after starting to redevelop its base.

Park View Business Centre, located on the Combermere Abbey Estate between Nantwich and Whitchurch has just started work again on another phase of redevelopment.

Having secured vital EU rural grant funding through the Rural Development Programme for England (RDPE) Growth Program, the project will create an additional five office spaces and a new sandwich bar/café, which will in turn generate four new direct jobs for the area.

The sandwich bar/cafe will provide a place for the Park View Business Centre tenants and their staff to have lunch, as well as providing excellent facilities for meeting business clients in an informal environment.

Peter Beckett, managing director of PVBC, said the redevelopment will allow people based in rural areas to work to their full capacity.

“We were hugely grateful for the guidance and support we were given in accessing the RDPE Growth Programme,” he said.

“In particular, Rachel Bolton [rural enterprise manager for The Skills and Growth Company] provided excellent professional help and encouragement throughout the process – this made all the difference to achieving success in a complex process.

“Helping to keep working people in the countryside is a passion we are keen to pursue, making the most of combining traditional buildings with modern technology.”

Based on the A530, the new offices will be of various sizes, attracting a range of businesses at different stages of their evolution and growth and will suit from two to 15 people.

All new spaces will benefit from the superfast broadband with internet speeds of up to 100 MBS with free parking, on-site gym and electric car charging points all available to keep Park View Business Centre at the forefront of office options.

Rachel Bolton said: “This is another fantastic project which not only expands an already successful business centre but creates jobs and contributes to our thriving rural economy in Cheshire East.”

Tina Hayward, manager of PVBC added: “This next phase of work is really exciting and we look forward to bringing more businesses to this wonderful location.

“The benefits of great value office spaces with our additional support services not only gives people the best chance of succeeding with building their business, but also of maintaining the best work-life balance”.

The new office building and café are planned to be completed before Christmas 2019.
