Commercial property in Stevenage
Located just off the A1(M), between Letchworth Garden City and Welwyn Garden City, Stevenage is a commuter town in Hertfordshire. It was the first New Town to be built when the authorities were pushing to build homes for people following the destruction caused by the Second World War. Although there was already a settlement in Stevenage, it became a much larger town when new neighbourhoods were built in the area. It has a population over 89,000.
Thanks to its fairly modern development, Stevenage is easy to get around. It was the first town in the UK to have a traffic-free shopping zone in the centre. There’s also an extensive cycle network, designed to discourage people from driving.
Stevenage’s close proximity to the A1(M) makes it an attractive place for both residents and businesses. It provides a direct link to London, as well as straightforward connections to cities in the north. When travelling by train, you can reach the capital in just 20 minutes. There are also convenient transport links to both Luton and Stansted airports, which take around an hour. You can drive to Luton Airport within half an hour.
As a commuter hotspot, Stevenage is still growing. It holds a lucrative opportunity for businesses wanting to benefit from London’s network for a fraction of the price (and a short journey).
