Business premises available at Riversway Managed Workshops

22 September 2023

If you have a small business and are looking for premises, the council owns Managed Workshops at Preston Docks, which could be just what you're looking for.

Self-contained storage space is ideal for all kinds of enterprise, and there are currently a number of units available now or in the coming months to let at Riversway Managed Workshops, off Chain Caul Way. The units have been fully let for a long time and remain popular with small local businesses. This really is a unique opportunity to have available space in these units and they are unlikely to remain vacant for very long. 

Conveniently placed to take advantage of shops and retailers already located at Preston Docks, the location is within easy reach of the city centre and also benefits from good transport links, notably the recently opened Edith Rigby Way - the Preston Western Distributor Road connecting easily to the M55 motorway. The available units range in size and are offered with reasonable rent and terms.

A total of 29 units are at the site, and the spaces benefit from water and electricity supply plus 11 have a roller-shutter door suitable for storage and deliveries. Lease terms would be subject to approved business use. Other facilities include car parking with the units, on-site management, together with a bookable meeting room for tenants.

Councillor Martyn Rawlinson, Deputy Leader and Cabinet member for resources, said:

"The council's property portfolio is varied and suitable for quite a wide range of business uses in a tough economic climate. 

"Our current vacant units at the Riversway Managed Workhops offer affordable rents and terms. 

"Working with enterprises of all sizes benefits the city's economy which, in turn, benefits everyone across Preston.

"If you're in the market for business accommodation, the council offers viable options for you and your company."
