Why let commercial property in the Dudley area?
The borough of Dudley may not play such a key role in the UK’s industrial industry today but it’s still a major player in the West Midlands economy, with over 10,000 active firms and a workforce of 112,000+. Any start-up or growing business looking for a cost-effective, well-connected West Midlands base should certainly give Dudley some serious consideration.
Geographically, there are few better-connected towns of Dudley’s size. The M6 and M5 motorways are a matter of minutes away by car, as is Birmingham city centre. Dudley is also within easy reach of Birmingham International Airport, which can be hugely beneficial for businesses looking to forge valuable trade links overseas.
The Black Country has always had a strong sense of heritage and cultural identity, with Dudley at the heart of the UK’s former Industrial Revolution, most notably coal and engineering. As part of an ambitious 30-year plan to redefine Dudley’s economy and profile,the area is benefitting from over £1 billion worth of investment in key projects. These include a new Metro network and transport interchange, investment in the town’s Very Light Rail National Innovation Centre to underpin the development of autonomous vehicles, and Dudley’s dedicated Business and Innovation Enterprise Zone.
Dudley is on the cusp of an exciting new chapter in the town’s history. With a Metropolitan Borough Council passionate about regenerating and helping businesses in the town to fulfil their potential, now is the perfect time to take the leap of faith and locate your business in Dudley. Although there may be upheaval to the town’s infrastructure along the way, the long-term goal of regenerating Dudley should help put its local businesses back firmly on the commercial map.
