The site was built by Nocton Ltd’s Paul Clarke in the 1990s on his 7,500 acre Nocton Estate.
Hall says: "The horticulture industry has a lot of areas starved of investment over a number of years with buildings that are up to 40 years old still working but this was put up in the 1990s and is big and modern with lots of commercial options." He said there are many horticultural possibilities for the site.
Quinton Edwards is marketing the site, which is part of a much larger nursery and agricultural complex.
The site for rent via Quintons is 4.73 hectares (11.707 acres), has 10,555 sq.m. (113,620 sq.ft.) of warehouse, offices and cold stores with 16,447 sq.m. (177,041 sq.ft. / 4.068 acres) of glass. There is land adjacent which has an implemented town planning consent for a further 5 acres of glass.
Munks Agricultural Contractors bought the site in 2011. Steff Munks says Nocton is most suitable for someone looking for a substantial site and he is prepared to wait for the right tenant. There has already been serious interest in taking it on.
The Nocton site is a horticultural depot with large amounts of cold stores and areas with underfloor heating for bulbs.
Quinton Edwards says "a good rent free period can be made available and/or our clients may be prepared to spend money upgrading the premises subject to negotiation". Rental offers are sought in the region of £550,000 per annum.
