Toolstation sign up to trade counter scheme at Forbes Park in Long Eaton.

26th April 2021


Interest in a new industrial and trade counter scheme on Fields Farm, Long Eaton has gained momentum as construction begins on site.

Clowes Developments are delighted to announce that national retailer, Toolstation is one of the first occupiers to announce their move to a brand new 5,142sq ft trade counter unit in Block F at Forbes Court.

The speculative development of phase 1 units, blocks D&F are set to reach practical completion by Q4 of 2021. This first phase has received high levels of interest which has seen phase 1 fully occupied before diggers even touched the soil. Toolstation will be one of the first occupiers to move in their unit at the end of this year.

Forbes Court, made up of blocks D, E and F, offers a total of 32,562 sq ft across 11 trade / industrial / warehouse units. The units offer a range of sizes available from 992 sq ft up to 5,511 sq ft with the additional ability to combine units to create larger sizes of up to 25,445 sq ft. Additionally, planning consent has now been granted for units A, B and C which are set to be speculatively built. 

Richard Sutton, Director at NG Chartered Surveyors commented, 

“Given the continued levels of interest shown at Forbes Park, it underpins Clowes Development understanding of the local market. This is exactly what Long Eaton has been calling for and complements surrounding industrial scheme.”

Chris Proctor at FHP Property Consultants commented,

“Announcing an occupier of the calibre of Toolstation is a great start for Forbes Park and we hope to bring further good news very soon with a number of other high-profile names under offer or in discussion currently.”
