Spelthorne THE place to locate a business

This is not just us that are saying this, in the UK Competitiveness Index for 2013 the Borough was placed thirteenth out of 379 local authority areas across England and Wales.  Within the whole of the south east region we are the fourth most competitive compared to the other 67 local authorities.

When measuring competitiveness account is taken of a variety of factors including: -

Economic 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, unemployment rates.

These factors indicate the strength of an area to attract and retain new businesses, it signals to businesses when looking for a place to move to or set up that Spelthorne is a premier location, particularly with its proximity right next to Heathrow and London, 6 railway stations in the Borough (Waterloo 32 minutes away) and of course the Junction 1 of the M3 motorway and Junction 13 of the M25 situated in Spelthorne with the M4 just outside the Borough boundaries.

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, BUPA and Wood Group Kenny.
