Finding business premises or land
South Cambridgeshire is almost unique in combining a strong entrepreneurial and business culture with a truly green and pleasant land. We are a collection of villages, and people value the strong sense of local community set in fenland sites, natural habitats rich in biodiversity, country parks and our network of footpaths, bridleways and waterways. At the same time Cambridge is in easy reach, and offers all the retail, leisure and cultural facilities anyone could ask for.
We have a wide range of commercial premises in our area that are available for rent or to buy.
South Cambridgeshire has 3 main business sites in Cambourne, Northstowe and Waterbeach. Our employment zones offer high-quality, modern accommodation with good transport links to Cambridge, Stansted Airport, London and beyond.
To find up-to-date details of many of the premises or land available to buy or rent in South Cambridgeshire, including shops, offices, factories and warehouses, you could search Estates Gazette's Property Link, Rightmove or Zoopla. These sites are continuously updated by local property agents.
