Eddisons’ insight invited on annual business survey

Eddisons’ commercial property expertise has been called upon in Peterborough by regional business insiders who, once again, invited the firm’s Julian Welch to contribute to the 2021 Greater Peterborough Business Survey.

The annual survey is organised by Azets, the UK’s largest regional accountancy and business advisor to SMEs, in association with Opportunity Peterborough.

The survey canvasses the opinions and experience of a cross section of companies in the Greater Peterborough area about trading conditions in the previous twelve months.

Responses are collated and summarised, and a panel of local business services professionals offer sector-specific insights on matters including recruitment, skills, corporate finance, climate emergency and commercial property, among other disciplines.

Eddisons Director, Julian Welch, has been a member of the expert panel for a number of years.

In this latest survey he offers insight on the resilience of Greater Peterborough’s industrial and manufacturing sectors, the changing nature of the retail and leisure markets in the area’s market towns and the city centre, as well as the evolution of the office as a workspace.

Speaking about his longstanding association with the annual Greater Peterborough Business Survey, Julian Welch said, “It is a privilege to be invited to contribute to this vital piece of business research as part of the panel of professionals.

“It will be no surprise to business audiences in the Greater Peterborough area that, on the whole, the 2021 survey reports that our companies have faced the twin pressures of the Covid-19 pandemic and BREXIT with fortitude.

“Peterborough remains well placed to respond to market demands for commercial property, reflecting its position within the UK Fast Growth Cities Group, alongside Milton Keynes, Cambridge, Norwich, Oxford and Swindon.”
