HIE conducts survey to gauge demand for commercial property and land

Highlands and Islands Enterprise (HIE) has launched a study to assess the demand for commercial property and land in the region.

Businesses, community groups, and social enterprises with future property or land plans are urged to participate in the short survey by 22 March.

HIE is seeking input from both existing organisations in the area and those contemplating establishing a business in the Highlands and Islands. The survey covers interest in purchasing land or leasing space, with the aim of gathering comprehensive data to facilitate informed decision-making for future development.

The headline findings from this anonymous survey will be shared publicly to help better plan for future potential development regarding land, industrial workshop, laboratory or office space across the Highlands and Islands.

Douglas Cowan, director of communities and place at HIE, said: “This study is about understanding the commercial property and land needs across our region, which is fundamental to informing the work that we and our partners do in meeting their requirements and the needs of businesses and communities.

“We’d like to hear from any organisation including those that are seeking space to expand or develop their business. The results from the survey will provide a valuable insight into the demand and needs for property and land from businesses across the Highlands and Islands and will be a useful tool in prioritising investment in property.”
