The brand new warehouse/trade counter space is a 10,000 sq ft site. Terms were agreed at the end of July on a new 15-year lease.

According to the agent, Barker Storey Matthews, the two completed development phases of Eagle Business Park have played an important part in re-positioning commercial, industrial property opportunities in the southern part of Peterborough.

Richard Jones, of Barker Storey Matthews’ Peterborough office, explained: "Eagle Business Park and the nearby Discovery Park - both developed by Barnack Estates Ltd - are offering modern, purpose built premises to meet ongoing industrial occupier demand from a range of operators.

"National occupiers such as Screwfix at Discovery Park, and now Howdens at Harrier Court at Eagle Business Park, raise the commercial profile of the southern side of the Peterborough.

"The presence of national brands boosts that of local and regional independent trade counter and light industrial occupiers who are also in position at these now established business locations."
