Choose the Braintree District for Business

Serious about business growth

The Council has ambitious plans for growth, with 14,000 new houses and around 20,000 new jobs planned by 2033. We have set out how we intend to create the right conditions for growth in a joint Prospectus with our business community ‘Building a Prosperous District’ – strengthening the economic infrastructure of the District, providing effective business and employment support, and regeneration of our towns and rural areas. The District is a key growth location in Essex and the South East Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) supports this ambition as the business-led, public/private body established to drive economic growth across the South East.

Our top priority is the dualling of the A120 between Braintree and the A12, creating a corridor of economic growth and effectively linking Stansted Airport and the Haven Ports, working with our partners in the Haven Gateway Partnership

A superb location for your business

Braintree District offers employers a wide range of attractive, accessible employment sites and premises at highly competitive total cost of occupancy. Our superb location means you will benefit from proximity to strategic infrastructure (road, sea and air) allowing access to East coast ports and key UK & international markets including Europe, London and Cambridge. 

Superfast (24 MBPS) fibre broadband coverage is widely available throughout the District, enabling your business to stay globally connected.
