Business Description
LOCATION:
In the Borough of Havant, this established community business has been operating successfully in a desirable dormitory town located on the A3 since the Eighties and is close to the commercially vibrant city of Portsmouth. The areas' population growth coincided with the advent of the Portsmouth to Horndean light railway, which opened in 1897. By the 1960s, population growth was rapid. In 2003, Hampshire County Council forecast the population of the Borough of Havant to reach 117,997 by 2008. Unemployment in the area is only 1.8% with average total annual income of £21,954 (National Statistics 2004). Other than Portsmouth, the towns of Petersfield and Waterlooville are also nearby, close to Butser
Hill National Nature Reserve, Hampshire's biggest country park with 20 miles of trails for walkers, cyclists & horse riders. It is the highest point on the South Downs with 1,400 acres of open access woodland and downland within the East Hampshire Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
