Former Army camp is a single site again
FOR the first time since it was an Army camp back in the 1960s, what is to become the Ashdown Business Park is now in one single ownership.
Summerthorne Estates has recently exchanged contracts for the acquisition of the final part, the Wealden District Council land together with the woodland at Calves Shaw.
Simultaneously planning permission has been granted for the development of just under 14 acres, which would result in a likely floor space of around 240,000 sq ft.
Lawson Commercial partner Chris Lawson, who was part of the team handling the acquisition for Summerthorne Estates says: 'It has taken many years of long and protracted negotiation to acquire the whole site but we have achieved an excellent result finally.

"The site in its entirety, including Calves Shaw, is just under 33 acres and is intended to provide a quality business park environment with a high level of landscaping. This is a strategically important site in North Wealden for business development being at the junction of the main A22 Uckfield/Maresfield bypass with the A272.
"Interest is being sought from businesses that want to relocate to this part of Sussex and a marketing campaign is in the process of being put together.'
Other members of the Summerthorne Estates team include Mike Barber of Uckfield-based MJB Architecture and Steve Mead of Lewes solicitors Adams & Remers.
