Office development for Surrey County Council
- New office that will be let by South East Coast Ambulance Service
- Local authority developing property to generate revenue for front-line services
- Demonstrates Willmott Dixon's know-how for commercial office development
- Long-term presence in Surrey through Cobham office
This is a great example of a local authority using development to provide funding streams for future services.
Watch it built in seconds!
In this case, Surrey County Council is developing a brownfield site which has been pre-let by South East Coast Ambulance Service. The council believe this approach is a blueprint for others to follow in using land assets to provide long-term revenue streams that off-set cuts in other funding sources.
As a follow-up, the council want the Gatwick Diamond development, close to the airport, to become a “Blue-Light” centre and are in discussions with other local emergency services on pre-letting the next phase of development.
