Find The Right Premises

Gosport Premises Options

Home Based

If you are running your new business from home then there are some regulations to be potentially aware of, plus tax relief that you can potentially claim.  See Home Based Business for more information.

Test Trading

If you need or want to test trade your product or service to local consumers then a market stall pitch at the Gosport High Street Market (Tuesdays and Saturdays) can provide a cost effective solution.  For more information including the start-up package for  Saturdays and contact details to apply for a pitch please see Gosport Market.

This also gives you the opportunity to get your business established prior to committing to a formal lease on commercial premises in Gosport High Street, the Precinct, Stoke Road, Lee-on-the Solent etc.

Commercial Property Search and Advice

If it is not going to be home based we can help you with your Commercial Property Search.  Gosport offers office, storage and workshop units on flexible terms in Business Centres that are ideal for start up businesses; as well as premises on traditional leasehold or freehold terms, including retail.  The Interactive Map shows you where the industrial estates and business centres are located.

When choosing your business premises it is important to ensure that it has the appropriate planning use, so if in doubt please contact the Council’s Planning Section.  In addition there may be Building Control requirements to take into account with regard to premises layout and any alterations.

Further Information and Support

To help you with your commercial property decision the Government provides online guides to Choosing Your Business Premises and Renting and Buying Business Premises as part of its business start up advice.
