Clowes Developments update the market on their progress at brand new industrial hub, Forbes Park located off Fields Farm Road in Long Eaton.

Forbes Park construction works began in Spring 2021. Despite nationwide challenges within the construction industry, main contractor Roe Developments and the wider team including IMA Architects, Millward Consulting Engineers and Postins Project Services have delivered the first phase of the development.

Clowes together with their agents, NG Chartered Surveyors and FHP Property Consultants, are pleased to announce that occupiers of Block F including Toolstation and City Plumbing are open and trading. The final occupier, yet to be named, are completing their fitout and are aiming to begin trading by the summer.

Block D comprising of four individual units totalling circa 13,700sq ft has been sold in its entirety to a private investor. Occupiers are expected to move into their new premises later this year.

The construction of Unit A, comprising a standalone 19,500sq ft unit with a secure goods yard and private car park, completed in April 2022, this unit will soon be occupied by its new owners.

Construction continues in other areas of the site. Unit C is expected to be ready for occupation by the end of the year with a private investor already lined up to take occupation of the building upon completion.

Block E comprises four terrace retail / fast food units with a prominent roadside presence and convenient parking. The target completion date for the units is the 19th of May 2022 with a national bakery chain due to take occupation of Unit E1 once complete.

Richard Sutton from NG Chartered Surveyors commented,

“This is a landmark moment for Long Eaton’s newest development and for Clowes who have created something very special. It’s been fantastic working for them alongside the team at FHP to achieve a fantastic result with nearly all the units sold or pre-let ahead of the practical completion date.”

Chris Proctor of FHP is also anticipating the completion of further units, saying,

“Clowes Developments have created a fantastic new trading estate for Long Eaton, which is supported by the fact all units have either been pre-let or pre-sold. It has been a pleasure working on the scheme alongside Clowes, NG Chartered Surveyors, IM Architects, Geldards and Roe Developments on this highly successful scheme of new trading units. I look forward to the completion of further units on the estate, with a number of these already under offer.”

Three units remain available to let in unit E’s retail/fast food facility. Interested parties are invited to contact agents Chris Proctor of FHP Property Consultants via or Richard Sutton of NG Chartered Surveyors via directly.
