Investing in Stevenage
Stevenage has an incredible amount to offer: strategically located within Hertfordshire, Stevenage is well connected by road and rail network. Access to King’s Cross in 19 minutes, Canary Wharf in 38 minutes, and Heathrow in 45 minutes, makes it quicker to get into Central London from Stevenage than from some London Boroughs. Stevenage also boasts connections to the North as far as Edinburgh taking just over 4 hours journey time, Newcastle in 2 and a half hours, Leeds and York both less than 2 hours; and local journeys to Cambridge in under 40 minutes.
Due to Stevenage’s proximity to the A1(M), it offers excellent road connections at a regional level to Cambridge (45 minutes), London Heathrow (60 minutes) and Northampton (60 minutes). Luton is located 15 miles to the west while Central London is 30 miles to the south.
As well as housing and commercial growth opportunities that will deliver 7,600 new homes by 2031, Stevenage is also host to a diverse business community with highly-skilled world-renowned companies such as GlaxoSmithKline, Airbus Defence & Space and MBDA based in the borough.
