Lancaster Way Business Park, Ely: Business is booming !

27th October 2017

 

Ely’s largest business park, Lancaster Way, continues to grow from strength to strength. Offering a mix of rental properties and sites for freehold commercial development, more and more start-ups and established businesses are now being attracted to this location. The benefits are obvious:

 

  • Based in the vibrant Cambridge ‘shadow’,
  • Situated just outside Ely, which regularly scores highly in the annual “best places to live and work in the UK” survey,
  • Good communication links, as only 1 mile off the A10,
  • Enterprise zone status since 2016 (perhaps unexpectedly):
    • Up to £275,000 business rates relief,
    • Fast tracked planning,
    • Access to growth funding,
  • On site security,
  • Fast broadband.

 

Growth on this park during the last 2 years has been particularly noticeable. The site has now evolved to a size where it carries its own support infrastructure, including a children’s nursery, catering and car servicing. With backing from our local MP, Lucy Fraser, and the local Council, this is great news for Ely generally.
