Rutland has a strong sense of community, and this translates into a very supportive network for local businesses. When you add this to the fact that the county also enjoys good transport links and 95% coverage for superfast broadband, you realise it’s a great place to start up.
The count has roughly 1900 businesses operating, with the manufacturing and service sectors seeing particularly strong growth. The two main towns, Oakham and Uppingham, play host to many of these and provide a great base from which to operate. For more details and stats, Rutland County Council has a section on their website dedicated to supporting businesses (https://www.rutland.gov.uk/businesses), and it is updated on a regular basis.
How can we help you with finding property in Rutland?
To understand if Rutland is right for you, particularly with respect to your needs as a business owner, Charlie Rearden,
our local Regional Director for the area, will always spend time carrying out an initial consultation with you. This can be face to face, but obviously geographical constraints can make this hard so meetings via Skype/Zoom are very productive too. Once Charlie has a clear idea of what you’re looking for, and why, he will then be able to offer you:
- The best properties to suit your budget and taste.
- The most suitable locations to meet your business and travel needs.
- The easiest access to maintain and enjoy family connections.
However, it’s worth noting that as a property finder we help not only with your house hunt but we also oversee the purchase process all the way to completion. And in taking on this role, we thus remove many of the troublesome obstacles you may encounter e.g. organising surveyors, conveyancers, and tradespeople.
If you’d like to discuss your plans, or find out more to understand how property in Rutland might just be the place for you to settle, then give Charlie a call on 01780 678770 or 07779 261744
