A company is relocating to Bexhill to move into new offices.

Park Holidays UK, based at Coghurst Hall in Hastings, will be at the Glovers House offices at the new Bexhill Enterprise Park from tomorrow (Thursday, December 3).

Tony Clish, commercial director, said the move provided a ‘much-needed solution’ to enable the company’s continued expansion.

He added: “For the past 26 years, we’ve been constantly growing and recruiting. But recently, limited space at our Hastings headquarters meant it was becoming increasingly difficult to expand and moving out of the area was an option we may well have been forced to consider.

“We’d already examined alternative locations including sites closer to the M25. However, the A21 improvements and construction of the Link Road persuaded us to stay in the area.

“Our move to Glovers House means we can remain committed to the geographical roots of our business and move forward in a superb new environment, purpose-built for an expanding enterprise such as ours.

“We’re particularly delighted to have additional space for staff training. We envisage recruiting at least 10 new personnel in the coming year, which could rise if we acquire more parks or increase our accommodation.

“Our move also means there’s now more room to grow our park business at Coghurst Hall, with the prospect of more jobs being created.”

Ninety staff work at the firm and the company aims to recruit a further 10 people over the next 12 months.

Allowing access to Glovers House only, the new Bexhill Gateway Road, connecting to Wrestwood Road at its southern end, opened today (Wednesday, December 2).

This 850m, single-carriage road will connect through, at its northern end, to the Link Road (now named Combe Valley Way) when the road opens.

Both Glovers House and the Bexhill Gateway Road have been developed by economic development company Sea Change Sussex

In addition to Glovers House, sites on the Bexhill Enterprise Park are available, capable of accommodating up to 220,000 sq ft of premises.

Sea Change also has plans to develop a second office building, similar to Glovers House.
