Business centres

Encouraging new and growing businesses within the East Riding is a key issue for the council. As part of this ongoing commitment, we have invested in a range of modern business centres with office and workshop accommodation suitable for start-up, small and medium-sized businesses

Our business centre occupants share a stimulating, friendly and professional business environment with a number of other dynamic companies. This gives the advantage of the collegiate support available within large corporations and allows excellent networking opportunities.

In uncertain times it is particularly important to be able to respond quickly to changes in business circumstances. Our business centre occupants can downsize or expand within a business centre without penalty and still keep the same address; they can use the facilities of another business centre in the portfolio or move on, without further costs after giving one month's notice.

Take a look at our business centres in the video below:
