There is a pedestrian walkway from Villa Road through to Tolgate East with occupiers including Homebase and Magnet Kitchens.

The development will provide a new and exciting commercial building extending to circa 2,200 sq ft and will deliver a high-quality building feature corner window facing the access road creating a new observation point. The glass is angled to orientate views over the parking area. The glass facade is angled to reduce glare from the rising and setting sun, whilst making most of the benefit of solar gain to passively heat the building during the autumn and winter. A large soffit above the glass helps to shade the building in the summer months and to aid cooling. The slant of the glass also aims to promote visibility across the car park and reduce glare to the neighbouring dwellings.

The new development will be suitable for a range of occupiers to include but not limited to retail, restaurant, office, health, leisure and the developer will work with the tenant in respect to the final specification and internal fitout works.

The site is accessed from Villa Road. There is an area of hardstanding which is used for staff and customer car parking.
