£37m Business Boost for Sittingbourne
Major regeneration funding is being earmarked for North Kent and will significantly increase the attraction of Sittingbourne as a location for expanding businesses. Work on a major £37m scheme to further improve road access to the Eurolink Industrial Estate will start at the end of September, giving a faster connection to the M2 and to A249 Sheerness port link.

CEC’s St George’s Business Park at Eurolink will benefit directly from the development adding to its already impressive offer of a high quality and secure location at the centre of a designated growth area.

Regeneration plans for the Swale section of the Thames Gateway include major growth in housing and the development of a range of high tech industries. Swale Council and the economic development group Swale Forward say major investment will bring new businesses and new jobs.

CEC Operations Director David Clapham said the company was excited by the growth prospects at St George’s Business Park with signs pointing to significant development and growth for the area.

He said: “We have invested substantially in St George’s Business Park and we have already had to build a new wing to meet the demand for offices and workshops. We have also maintained a programme of extensive refurbishment and upgrading to provide an outstanding business centre location.

“Logistics businesses and other businesses requiring good transport links have always featured prominently at St George’s Business Park and we expect this sector to continue to grow strongly there.”

Offices, studios and workshops are available at St George’s Business Park on a simple monthly licence. An on-site manager provides administrative support, meeting room management, state of the art telecommunications, postal services, telephone answering and access to business catering.

A Virtual Service for businesses working from home is also available giving a Business Park address, mail and telephone answering services and access to meeting rooms and office space. Larger companies can take advantage of bespoke business continuity arrangements.
