A large, modern detached warehouse unit on a popular Westbury business park has been sold to Wiltshire Council.

Myddelton & Major partner Philip Holford said: “Hawksworth is a well-managed business park, popular with corporate occupiers and this warehouse only became available due to a previous relocation.

“I was pleased to facilitate the sale to the council, who had an urgent need to relocate an existing service within the county.

The 16,572 sq ft unit is arranged as a 12,716 sq ft warehouse with ground floor office, canteen and WCs – plus a 3,856 sq ft mezzanine floor providing additional storage space. Outside, a surfaced yard provides parking and loading access.
