Detailed planning permission granted for the new Bridgwater Gateway business park.

Wednesday 2nd March, 2016

Detailed planning permission has been granted for the new Bridgwater Gateway business park.

The consent covers the 45-acre first phase of the development and comprises a range of proposed new business park buildings including offices, industrial and a 150-bed hotel.

Buildings are available on a design and build basis.

The initial enabling works have already started on site to create the access and entrance into the park. Work has also started on an upgrade of the Huntworth roundabout and the A38.

Bridgwater Gateway is said to be one of the largest new business parks to commence in the South West within the last ten years, and is set to be a major contributor to the local economy with the potential to create new jobs.

Phil Wade of Bridgwater Gateway said: “This speculative start on site shows our determination to capitalise on this fantastic location and the opportunities for occupiers in Bridgwater.”
