Why let industrial property in the Ely area?
The East Cambridge area surrounding Ely, Chatteris and Soham benefits from excellent road links across East Anglia and beyond. It’s far enough from Cambridge to offer a cost-effective alternative in terms of leasing costs, but close enough to tap into the city’s immense talent pool. For example, our light industrial unit on the Honeysome Industrial Estate in Chatteris is just 25 miles and 45 minutes from Cambridge via the A10.
Businesses within close reach of Ely or March train stations can also take advantage of the excellent rail links afforded to East Cambridgeshire. Hourly and bi-hourly rail services serve much of East Anglia and the East Midlands from these stations – perfect for businesses seeking to forge newtrading relationships further afield.
There is also an abundance of business support for industrial firms based in and around Ely and East Cambridgeshire. Enterprise East Cambridgeshire is empowered by the East Cambridgeshire District Councilto act as the bridge between businesses and funding opportunities to accelerate growth. These opportunities include cash grants, as well as business loans. The organisation is also beneficial in helping industrial businesses that export goods into EU member states to secure aid via the SME Brexit Support Fund. Exporters can get £2,000 in cash grants to cover the cost of upskilling and retraining for post-Brexit trading regulations.
It’s also important to mention the wealth of on-site facilities available to tenants of all our industrial units across Ely and the rest of East Cambridgeshire. Our premises typically offer ample on-site parking for employees and clients alike, as well as spacious and efficient loading facilities, ideal for firms that regularly import and export goods. Integratedoffices are also beneficial, while central heating and gas blowers help to create comfortable working environments even in the extremities of winter.
