Bracknell Celebrates Regeneration Investment as Economy Booms+
Good news for businesses based in Bracknell and those looking to relocate, as Bracknell and Wokingham Job Centre releases figures show a sharp drop in unemployment, which it puts down to the booming local economy.
Wokingham Council’s executive member for economic development and finance, Anthony Pollock, said to the Bracknell News last week: “the economy has been picking up in this area for a while, it bottomed out about two years ago but has been developing ever since.”
This news follows the announcement that £200 million is being invested in the regeneration of the town centre to provide new retail and leisure accommodation. Due for completion by 2016, the town centre will offer a high quality shopping and leisure experience, within a few minutes’ walk of Goodman’s Four Arlington Square.
The office market in the Bracknell and Wokingham area continues to be an appealing proposition. A combination of strong customer demand and a lack of recent development has contributed to a fall in office vacancy rates. This is in line with the broader market trends that has seen vacancy rates in the M4 and M3 corridors falling year-on-year.
Arlington Square, Bracknell offers an award-winning environment set in one of the most secure environments in the Thames Valley. The park is adjacent to the town centre, with easy access to the M3, M4, M25 and London Heathrow Airport. There is also a regular train service to London Waterloo from the railway station, which is a five minute walk from Arlington Square.
