Moving your business to Spelthorne

Spelthorne, a great place to do business

Four Great Reasons to move your business to Spelthorne

1.   The Economy

The health of the Spelthorne economy has shown remarkable growth over a number of years, as evidenced by our position as 59th out of 379 local authorities, putting the Borough in the top 16% of local authorities in the UK for competitiveness.

This is based on activity rates, business start-up rates per 1,000 inhabitants, number of businesses per 1,000 inhabitants, proportion of working age population with NVQ level 4 or higher, proportion of knowledge based businesses, gross value added per head at current basic prices, productivity - output per hour worked, employment rates, gross weekly pay and unemployment rates.

Spelthorne is already home to the BP International Centre for Business and Technology with more than 5,000 staff on site, the world renowned Shepperton Studios who are in the process of a £500 million pound expansion programme and the Wood Group Kenny.

To continue our drive to help support and develop Start Ups, Small Businesses and Entrepreneurs we are opening a Business Incubator in Sunbury on Thames early 2021

2.     Transport

Spelthorne possesses the foundations envied by other locations, particularly given its proximity to London which is serviced by six stations that go to Waterloo and is only 32 minutes away. We are right next door to Heathrow with Junction 1 of the M3 motorway and Junction 13 of the M25 situated in Spelthorne and the M4 and M40 just outside the Borough boundaries.

3.   What's Near By

Spelthorne is a beautiful borough to live in with 750 acres of parkland and 12 miles of the River Thames to enjoy. Attractions like Thorpe Park, Hampton Court, Windsor Great Park and Kempton Racecourse are all nearby. Spelthorne also has vibrant High Streets and Retail Park and Cinema Complex.

4.   Housing and Education

Spelthorne has a number of private and public schools in or near the borough and very attractive properties ranging from studio flats to luxurious properties by the river.
