Adviser introducing the world to Cheltenham's Cyber Central

Real estate adviser Avison Young has been appointed to attract future occupants of Cheltenham's Cyber Central development.

The company will work alongside Cheltenham Borough Council to introduce newly-released details for businesses interested in joining the cyber and digital technology community at the heart of the Golden Valley Development.

The development has been awarded Garden Community status by Homes England, which described the integrated plans for a world class cyber and digital tech campus surrounded by homes and green spaces as unique.

Avison Young director Paul Williams said: "The Golden Valley Development will be a sustainable mixed-use scheme integrating Cyber Central UK as part of an innovative Garden Community, comprising up to two million square foot of commercial floorspace and more than 3,000 new homes, challenging the existing norms relating to design and sustainability particularly in response to the climate change agenda.

"We're keen to talk to cyber and tech businesses who recognise the potential to be at the heart of this vibrant and environmentally progressive, 24/7 campus."

He continued: "This is the chance to be part of a new kind of working environment, focussed around the rapidly growing, world-leading cyber and digital tech sector in Cheltenham.

"From start-ups to existing businesses looking for new opportunities, we'd encourage anyone looking to find out more, to get in touch."

Cheltenham's thriving high-tech ecosystem has already attracted eading household tech names including Microsoft, Apple and IBM alongside innovators, start-ups and the UK's brightest academic minds.

The cyber community will have a range of shared amenities that may include teaching and lab spaces, both formal and informal meeting spaces, event space, catering facilities and a visitor attraction.

Additional amenities such as food, leisure and retail facilities, shared academic and teaching facilities with hotel and conferencing planned.
