East Cambridgeshire is home to the City of Ely and a collection of market towns and villages. A rural district, Ely is at the heart of the significant growth in the local economy providing an affordable and accessible location for business with access to a skilled workforce. The City of Ely is currently one of the fastest growing cities in Europe with the population forecast to reach over 27,000 by 2031.
This growth has transformed the area into a prosperous business and commercial centre with an impressive and growing cluster of high-tech business complementing the existing range of advanced manufacturing, business services, distribution and equine companies already well established in the area.
There are a range of business parks in East Cambridgeshire catering for an excellent mix of modern, light manufacturing, R&D and office requirements alongside available development land in key strategic locations around the district and transport interchanges that link Ely to Cambridge (15 mins), London King’s Cross (1 hour) and beyond.
