Written by Peter Davison.

James Drew of Trebor Developments LLP, Ralph Wells of WBM Property Ltd, cllr David Renard, leader of Swindon Borough Council, cllr Oliver Donachie, Chris Parsons, economic development officer at Swindon Borough Council, and Philip Cranstone of CBREWork has begun on a new warehouse and industrial complex in Swindon.

Manufacturing and distribution units of 36,750 to 78,750 sq ft will be built at Trinity Park at Hillmead, Swindon by Trebor Developments and partner Hillwood.

“We are pleased to commence the construction of this speculative development following another off-market site acquisition," said James Drew, development director at Trebor Developments.

"Swindon has a long-established industrial heritage with a skilled workforce and is strategically located with access to the M4 and the wider Motorway network.

“We are already having positive discussions with occupiers from a range of sectors and seeing construction commence on site reinforces the message to the market that the new accommodation will be available to occupy at the end of this year.”

Trinity Park is well connected by road, with Junction 16 of the M4 just three miles to the South West and the A419 three miles to the North West.

Trebor and Hillwood are represented by joint agents CBRE and WBM Property.

Councillor Oliver Donachie, Swindon Borough Council’s cabinet member for the economy and place, said: “Trebor Developments’ investment in Trinity Park is a real show of confidence in Swindon and I am delighted the company has recognised the potential in the site.

“We have a strong economy most cities would be proud of, fantastic transport links and we know we have talented people in our town.

"It is encouraging there has been such strong interest in the site from potential occupiers and I look forward to seeing which new employer wants to join the long list of major companies that already do business in Swindon.”
