Deleted User TLDR: There should be a lot more office space protected in the centre of Cheltenham. This is list is too short.

I think the analysis of the suitability of office space in Cheltenham is flawed and this list is too small. We looked at several spaces in the town centre and, for example, found the business model at Jessop house to be out of touch with modern needs and expensive. Others were tatty and in poor overall condition.

Conversely Eagle Tower was the best overall in terms of security, reception and parking. The internal layout is much better than many regency properties and being relatively modern, it's easy to fit out. Eagle Tower, at least, should be re-designated IMHO.

I also believe that this is a great opportunity to learn from how other cities organise their office spaces. Getting my staff to work is a key requirement, and frankly, the Golden Valley bypass is inadequate. How much room is there for expansion of The Park and Ride on that side of town?

Whilst I understand that the focus of this study is planning - it is important how this fits into a wider strategy to make Cheltenham the best place to locate your business - access and parking is a key part of that.

Half of my staff walk to work from the town centre, if we were forced to move to an out of town facility then they would all have to commute. That doesn't make sense.
