Gloucestershire council looking to raise funds by letting office space to county companies
By James Young | 15th January 2020
Office space for rent in Stroud District Council's Ebley Mill offices is helping to provide extra funds towards the authority's bid for self-sufficiency.
The council's Corporate Delivery Plan set out to create opportunities for income generation to help the council achieve their self-sufficiency aim.
As a result a number of office suites are now available to rent by external organisations and are being marketed by county-based chartered surveyors Ash and Co.
Stroud-based firm Catalyst Finance have already taken advantage of the opportunity and have moved its head office into Ebley Mill.Martine Catton, CEO of Catalyst Finance said:
"We are a proud member of the Stroud business community and finding such fantastic premises in the area enables us to provide our employees with a professional and conducive work environ-ment.
"I'm delighted to have made our new home at Ebley Mill, the space we have taken will allow us to grow the business and accommodate our plans for the foreseeable future."
A 393 square metre self-contained open plan office suite at Stroud District Council's offices at Ebley Mill with a private entrance, toilets, kitchenette, allocated parking and canal view is available now.
Ebley Mill was once the largest mill in the south west of England.
The 200-year-old Grade II listed building was bought by Stroud District Council in 1986 and convert-ed to office accommodation for its staff.
The historic building has good access to the M5 and lies between the recently restored Stroudwa-ter Navigation Canal and the River Frome.
The immediate area is predominantly residential, and is close to a number of small businesses in-cluding a gym and café bar.
Further office suites within Ebley Mill are also available for rent from approximately 308 to 487 square metres.
