Philip MacLachlan, Managing Director at Adept Consultancy, commented on Toolstation’s latest development: “With over 500 branches across the UK, Westpark 26 was a prime location for the growth of our branches both in the South West and the UK.”

Westpark 26 has established itself as a prime modern business park, with a range of amenities, serving both the Wellington/Taunton area and the wider M5 corridor. The 200,000 sq ft (18,500 sq m) site features industrial warehouses, distribution depots, workshops, trade counters, offices and small employment units with planning consent in place for further uses including logistics, manufacturing and health, as well as frontage and road side options.

The business park boasts a range of existing amenities including a 60-bed Travelodge hotel, the Skylark pub, Shell service station with a Budgens convenience store and Subway, in addition to Costa and McDonald’s restaurants, both with drive-thru facilities.

 Tim Western of JLL and Andrew Maynard of Alder King, joint marketing agents, commented ‘Summerfield’s strategy to speculatively construct modern business space has again paid dividends with these latest signings by well-known trade counter operators. Wellington is growing significantly as a town with large housing developments and Westpark 26 provides valuable employment opportunities’.
