Ansty Park - strategically located at the hub of the UK motorway network, adjacent to Junction 2 of the M6, is situated at the heart of the UK close to Coventry and Birmingham. It is located approximately 4 miles north east of Coventry, 25 miles east of Birmingham and 20 miles south west of Leicester. London is approximately 95 miles to the south east.
Ansty Park benefits from a centralised location at one of the UK’s key transport hubs; with six motorway junctions within a 20 mile radius and direct access to Junction 2 of the M6 as well as being within a 150 mile drive of 82% of the UK population. As a result Ansty Park is one of the most accessible business technology parks in the UK. Coventry Central railway station is a major stop on the West Coast mainline route providing excellent links to the local transport network and the region as well as enabling commuter access to and from London in 1hr 30mins.
Ansty Park will provide 1.5 million sq ft of space set in 100 acres of beautiful landscaped parkland and has been designed to ensure that the creation and sharing of knowledge is at the heart of the park’s future development.
Ansty Park is a sustainable development which balances environmental impacts with social and economic benefits. The masterplan reflects a landscape-driven approach. Existing landscape forms are used and enhanced, creating green buffers which will act as wildlife corridors and recreational routes.
Ansty Park was a Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) core Asset (owned by BEIS and managed by Homes England)
