The property development market here in the UK is alive and well, and there are a number of regions around the country that appear to be thriving more than others. While domestic and housing developments are always in the headlines, in order for the economy to continue growing, it is essential that there are commercial property opportunities available for businesses looking to expand.

The East Midlands region has a long-standing history with manufacturing and industry thanks to its central location in the country, excellent transport links and relatively cheap real estate. For businesses that are looking for their first office space, or for additional warehouse units for expansion, this region is one that holds a lot of potential.

While Nottingham, Leicester and Derby dominate the region, nearby Peterborough is also a major city that has a lot to offer those looking for commercial property opportunities. In fact, Peterborough commercial property (…..elopments/) developments are in high demand.

When asked the question, are there enough commercial property developments in the East Midlands, one must first look at the region as a whole and determine the level of business in the area next to demand.

All the major cities in the area have been undergoing renovation works within their respective city centres in recent years, including the High Cross Shopping Centre, Leicester and Nottingham’s focus on engaging consumers with more than just retail ventures.

These kinds of renovation work will always attract more shoppers and, subsequently, more businesses to the area, driving the local economy. Looking further afield to both Peterborough and Birmingham, the same can be said for these cities, also.

With the local economy on the up, this leaves more room for businesses to develop and grow as necessary, whether this is simply moving to bigger premises or seeking new office space entirely. This is natural when there are periods of economic growth, and these opportunities will likely be snapped up.

What remains is often demonstrative of how the economy is growing in the region. Those involved in real estate will evaluate the remaining property to ascertain whether property available matches up to demand.

An example of supply not matching demand can be witnessed when reviewing availability in Peterborough. While there are a number of opportunities available for larger units, smaller opportunities were in short supply. In order to re-balance, developments in this area have been out to tender in order to fulfil the needs of local and regional businesses.

This reactive response to the market is exactly why the industry is thriving, especially in the bigger cities throughout the region.

With property development on the increase, as well as a commercial need for real estate in the East Midlands, the future is looking bright for the area.
