Employment Allocation

The Isle of Wight Council have allocated a 14.7 hectare site to the south of Nicholson Road in Ryde to deliver a mix of primarily smaller scale B1 and B2 employment related uses.

The Council wishes to build on the success of the current provision at Ryde Business Park and extend the range of small scale B1 and B2 use facilities. The site is under Council ownership and has confirmed that it will bring the site forward early in the Core Strategy plan period.

Ryde Town Council has contacted the Isle of Wight Council to ask for an update on the progress of bringing this site forward. 

If you are an employer wishing to relocate to Ryde or an employer who wishes to expand within Ryde then please contact rtcplanning@btconnect.com to discuss how Ryde Town Council may be able to support you in this process.
