Two new Tenants have secured premises at a Lutterworth Business Park following deals completed by local Chartered Surveyors and Property Consultants, Wells McFarlane.

Cosford Business Park sits on the northern edge of Lutterworth, in the heart of the town’s business district. Wells McFarlane has recently completed two transactions which will see expansion for Deacons Martial Art & Fitness into a 1,308 sq ft unit and relocation for playground product manufacturer, All Play Solutions into a 1,335 sq ft space.

Mark Deacon, owner and chief instructor at Deacons Martial Arts & Fitness, which teaches children martial arts, karate and kickboxing to help improve confidence and wellbeing, said: “Our existing premises is in Oadby but the business is growing and we wanted to find a secondary location nearby. We were familiar with Lutterworth and as soon as we found Cosford Business Park, it seemed the obvious choice – close enough to our Oadby club but not so much as to have an adverse effect.

“It might seem a bold decision to expand our business during a pandemic but we’re confident it will work and look forward to teaching the children of Lutterworth and surrounding villages. As part of the expansion, we’re hoping to create job opportunities including a receptionist, part-time coaches and potential apprenticeships. We’re also exploring options such as collaborating with personal trainers and sports therapists, offering corporate memberships and potentially franchising, so plenty of excitement for 2021 and beyond.”

All Play Solutions followed a similar pattern, reaching a point where it had outgrown an existing home studio set-up and needed new premises to facilitate development.

Cosford Business Park occupies an excellent location within Lutterworth and is easily accessible from the M1 and M6. Andrew McFarlane Holt, Director at Wells McFarlane added: “It’s really encouraging to hear business success stories like these, especially in sectors where confidence levels have previously been quite low; hopefully an indication that some sort of normality is returning. Light industrial units, like these at Cosford Business Park, are in high demand as they offer real versatility and can be configured to accommodate showrooms, trade counters, storage, offices and workshops. I encourage Landlords with similar properties to get in touch.”
