Greene King acquires development site in Perth

A development site in Perth is to be transformed after it was purchased by Greene King.

A family restaurant and Costa Coffee drive-through will be built on the 1.67 acre site, which was marketed by JLL on behalf of Perth & Kinross Council. The site sits within Broxden Business Park, adjacent to Broxden Roundabout.

Planning and licensing have both been granted, with work expected to start in April. The site was one of five serviced development plots at the business park, with two plots now remaining at 1.4 acres and 0.6 acres.

Nina Stobie, associate director, JLL, said:

“Broxden Business Park is perhaps the foremost business location in Perth, which made the available land an attractive proposition for Greene King.

“With its prime position, we expect strong interest in the remaining two plots as businesses look to tap into the benefits of being located at the heart of Scotland.”

The location benefits from unrivalled access to Scotland’s road network thanks to its position next to Broxden Roundabout, which connects the M90, A9 and A93. It is situated close to the Broxden Park and Ride site, which serves the business park, the city centre and nearby bus and train stations.

Councillor Joe Giacopazzi, Vice-Convener of Perth Council’s Enterprise & Infrastructure Committee, said:

“We are pleased to see that there is continued interest from businesses at the site and that most of the plots now have been occupied.

“It is also very encouraging to see such a variety of different businesses have set up in the area. The business park is in a fantastic location and I hope that we will see the last two plots snapped up quickly.”

Current occupiers within Broxden Business Park include Scottish Government’s Environment & Rural Affairs Department, Lloyds Banking Group, Waterman Group, Gillespie Macandrew, Balhousie Care Group, Scotland’s Transerv and NHS Tayside’s Integrated Dental Treatment and Training Centre.

An ESSO service station, Travelodge, McDonalds and Harvester restaurant are all located next to the Park & Ride facility.
