A property deal involving Innes England and Salloway Property Consultants has resulted in a professional services firm moving its East Midlands office to Derby.

Heatons, which is a planning, environment, and design consultancy, has moved the office from Keyworth, in Nottinghamshire, to a building called The Arc, on Pride Park.

The deal was brokered by commercial property marketing agency Omeeto, working in partnership with Innes England.

Established in 1999, Heatons, which also has offices in the West Midlands and North West, provides expert planning and environmental impact support for a wide range of development schemes, including housing, industrial, infrastructure, commercial minerals and waste management use.

Spencer Warren, from Heatons, said: “Due to increased growth over the last few years, Heatons was keen to secure a larger office in a location that serves existing clients and staff well.

“The move to The Arc provides opportunities to expand the client-base, building on established relationships across the East Midlands.

“The plan over the next few years is for continued growth and the move to The Arc facilitates this.”

Chris Wright, director at Omeeto, said: “Since the initial impact of the pandemic, the office market in Derby has picked up significantly and looks set to continue.

“This is particularly so for Pride Park, which is the city’s premium business location with excellent communications links.

I was particularly pleased to be marketing this first floor office accommodation having previously secured the lease to bring Handelsbanken into the ground floor of The Arc.”

Nick Hosking, director at Innes England, said: “This letting is another reflection of the considerable upturn in the office sector that we’ve seen over the last few months.

“Occupier activity, demand and crucially take-up have all increased significantly across Q2 and we see that trend continuing over the second half of the year.”

Heatons were represented in the deal by Salloway Property Consultants.

Phil Randle, from Salloway, said: “It was a pleasure to act for Heatons on the acquisition of their new offices and great to see a business relocating to Derby and the benefits to the local economy that brings.”
