Bradford's city centre is the focus of major investment and is a key driver for growth across the district. Over the last few years, in excess of £60 million of private sector investment has been complemented by over £30 million of investment in the public realm.
The city's local authority has made the redevelopment of the city centre a key priority through the City Centre Growth Zone. Investors and developers can now benefit from a range of incentives available in the Zone including, business rate rebates, disused space grants and capital grants and a flexible approach to planning.
A number of large sites have been opened up across the city centre that present good investment opportunities.
Planning permission for A1 to A5 use has been granted for the main sites along Broadway and Charles Street. Located adjacent to Westfield’s Broadway shopping centre, this area is in an unrivalled location and is set to become the city’s prime restaurant area. Speak to Invest in Bradford for more information about this unique investment opportunity.
A number of high value opportunities exist within the wider district.
To accommodate the growth of Bradford’s hi-tech companies and inward investor demand, the Council has brought forward a 6 hectare site in Baildon with approval for B1 use. Interest is high with the first company expected to move on to the site in late 2013. This major mixed used development is built on 16 acres of prime land with the potential for over 170,000 sq ft of business, hotel, retail and residential space.
The local authority has a good track record of working with private sector partners to deliver large-scale projects and at Invest in Bradford we're always interested to hear your ideas.
With the vast inward investment pouring into the city, now is the perfect time to invest in Bradford.
