Caddsdown Business Support Centre

The Caddsdown Business Support Centre has 13 Studios to let on the first floor of the building, all on easy in and easy out terms. The Centre also contains a staffed reception with administrative support.

The Centre is able to boast a conference facility with full catering back up and offers room hire for a range of business purposes which was completed in the recent expansion of the Business Park.

Business Incubation Offices

For start up business we are able to offer 12 Offices at "The Barns" on easy-in, easy-out tenancy agreements. These new facilities were converted from the Old Caddsdown Farm House. The offices are supported by staff at the Caddsdown Support Centre.

Sustainable Development

Half the £4 million funding for the Caddsdown Phase Two development came from the Government Office South West.

Adrian Dawson, from its South West Objective 2 division, said: "It has worked out even better than we had hoped. The mixture of the old and new is really impressive. In terms of sustainability, it is one of our exemplar projects and we're very proud of it."

Neil Hornby, head of structural funds co-ordination in the rural development division of the environment ministry DEFRA, said: "It is the detail which stands out and I was particularly impressed with the use of the old farm buildings - I've never seen that before. The project has been handled in a way that is a model of sustainability."

Innovations which have earned wide-spread acclaim include the imaginative use of renewable energy, including a state-of-the-art wood-burning heating system, an emphasis on sustainable materials such as timber frames and reclaimed bricks, and a policy of protecting and promoting the wildlife and natural habitat of the park.

The Business Park was  funded to the tune of £1 million each by Torridge District Council and the South West Regional Development Agency.

The second phase was officially opened on 9th June 2006.
