Bolesworth Property Director Simon Kennish took a hot seat at a high-profile conference discussing the region’s development plans and potential.

Simon was invited on to the panel at the Place North West Cheshire Development Update which was a cross-sector conference aimed at offering market insight and updates on development opportunities in the region and the plans shaping them.

Everything from logistics, housing, business parks, town centres, the rural economy and more was discussed at the event held at Chester Racecourse.

It was organised and hosted by Place North West, established 14 years ago, as a business to business website for property and regeneration professionals in the north west. Around 100 property professionals at the heart of the future of Cheshire development attended but with Covid-19 restrictions limiting numbers, the event was also live-streamed.

Simon said: “It felt strange but also really great to be back out enjoying an event such as this, meeting new people and doing everything face to face.

“It felt a great opportunity to raise the profile of Bolesworth and share the positive developments we are experiencing here, despite the challenges of the last 16 months.

“Our residential properties are in extremely high demand with people wanting to move out to the country and enjoy everything which an estate such as Bolesworth can offer. The ability to step outside your door, into the fresh air and be in the most spectacular rural surroundings.

“We have also seen a lot of smaller, start up business, coming to us who have set up during the pandemic from the dining room table and are now looking for their first business premises and we have the facilities here to support them.

“There’s demand from larger businesses too who are looking to move away from large offices in the middle of a city. We are able to work with all sorts of different businesses to find a property which fits their ambition and situation.

“The beauty of Bolesworth is that myself and the whole property team are on site ready to help find property solutions for our tenants which enables them to move forward, whether in a business or personal capacity.”
