The Port of Marchwood, New Forest


The opportunity / type:

Marchwood Port offers an outstanding opportunity for investment.

Solent Gateway Ltd is the port operator and developer and is delighted to announce its planning application to develop the port has been approved by the Local planning Authority.

SGL will generate 64ha of high quality logistic space with excellent connectivity by sea, rail and road.  It will provide standard port services to customers for import, storage and export activities, but also has considerable land available for long or short term lease.

It has excellent marine facilities that can accommodate vessels up to 169m with a guaranteed minimum depth of 8m but long periods of much greater depth due to the unique double tide. Hard standing areas or undeveloped land can be leased for further development by tenants.

Furthermore, Marchwood Port is a freeport tax site and customs site within the Solent Freeport, making it a very commercially attractive option for investors looking to develop new businesses inside a Freeport.  Marchwood Port is perfect for businesses looking to import, manufacture, then export or import into the UK because of the financial benefits offered by a tax site and the customs benefits offered by a customs site.

This is a unique opportunity for new businesses to establish themselves in a prime Freeport site on the south coast.
