Find a premises for your business
Tunbridge Wells Borough Council works closely with Locate In Kent and its partners to market and inform investors of development sites and premises in the Tunbridge Wells area.
Locate In Kent is the inward investment agency for Kent and Medway, working in partnership with public and private sector organisations to promote Kent as a business location and to provide a complete service from location sourcing to business aftercare.
In order to further ease your hunt for the right commercial premises for your business, they have developed a web-based searchable property database for you to filter results tailored to your needs. The search results offer you analysis and socio-economic data giving you the ability to tap into an area’s labour force and local skills information, demographics, population, wage levels, housing, infrastructure and educational offering. The intuitive tools and data infographics are highly visual, allowing you to map, chart and graph complex data to make it easy to use and search through the hundreds of properties we have available.
Additionally, Estates Gazette Property Link has a database of commercial properties available for rent or sale in the Tunbridge Wells area too.
