Development Opportunities

Telford is the birthplace of the Industrial Revolution and is leading the way for growth and investment in the West Midlands. The Telford Land Deal has revolutionised development opportunities in our town. Since its inception in 2016, in partnership with Homes England, it has attracted over £250 million of private investment and over £200 million public sector investment in the the area.

In the past two years, we have delivered £25 million-worth of development land sales - set to create over 1,000 new jobs as well as stimulating the construction of over 86,000 square meters of commercial floor space.

We ensure businesses and property developers have a ‘soft landing’ and that suitable sites are shovel ready with outline planning. This makes these sites ready for immediate development and have a dedicated team to offer a full service from providing logistical assistance in improving site access, utility provisions and drainage, as well as helping to secure planning certainty prior to sale and support with recruiting a workforce for your opening.

The Land Deal has proved instrumental in helping the region to secure record levels of Foreign Direct Investment, most notably a multi million pound injection from Magna International, a supplier of aluminum castings to nearby Jaguar Land Rover.

Opened in Spring 2018, the firm’s state-of-the-art, 250,000 square ft plant has created 300 jobs and is one of the biggest, new overseas investments in the UK in the last ten years. Other businesses supported through the deal include Austrian reinforced plastics supplier Polytec and German plastics and polymer specialist Craemer Group.

The University of Wolverhampton has invested £12 million in world class engineering services in 2017 and the specialist Harper Adams University is at the forefront of technological developments in the future of food production as the food and drinks sector is showing prominance with Muller and Pizza Go Go as recent investments.

Ni.PARK is a developing hub for Agri-Tech innovation to support increasing demands in this sector, bringing together agricultural and technical companies, making this a very investable proposition.
