Business Growth

Growing your business in the Horsham District

See our latest YouTube video (posted 18 December 2012)
Please see here a short video of Coast to Capital's Director Ron Crank talking to Horsham District Council following Local Enterprise Partnership Coast to Capital's recent move to Horsham. Coast to Capital has one main objective - to create 100,000 jobs in 25 years. Click on the link to find out more about the Growing Places fund, designed to help growth, develop infrastructure and to encourage jobs.

Whatever your size of business - whether expanding your business in the same place or having outgrown your existing facilities and needing to relocate to larger premises - it will require lots of planning and help.

A wide range of solutions are available for all types and sizes of business with a variety of commercial sites and premises offering excellent value when compared with other areas in the South East.

There are many established business parks and town locations throughout the District. Alternatively why not take advantage of the fabulous rural environment on the outskirts of the many market towns and villages in the District. There are numerous opportunities to locate your business in a fine selection of converted and sometimes historic barns on privately owned estates.

In addition to the existing range of facilities there are many opportunities to acquire land or bespoke buildings on a design & build basis to satisfy everything from a small industrial or office facility to a multi-million pound headquarters, laboratory or production plant.

Home based businesses, in particular, often find it difficult to find affordable move on premises. It is a big leap from the home to commercial premises. You may just need a virtual office, which offers a professional business address, secretarial assistance and someone to take your calls or orders, leaving you free to concentrate on running the business.

Horsham District Council is committed to supporting local businesses. Why not discuss your plans with us to enable us to understand your requirements - whether you need help with planning or just finding the perfect premises.

The Business Development service at Horsham District Council organises events to promote and support local businesses and works in partnership with a wide variety of organisations to ensure that Horsham businesses have all the appropriate specialist help they need to grow and prosper.

Other Council departments also support businesses with planning, licensing, initiatives to encourage recycling and conserve energy and putting planning policy for commercial land as well as housing.
