FIVE new businesses have moved into a rural business park since October following the completion of a new office development.

Oakwood Park Business Centre, near Ripley, is now home to Green Energy Publishing Ltd, Yorkshire Cloud, Phil Hargreaves Photography Studio, Bright Future IFA Ltd and Creatus Engineering Consultants.

Alan Cryer, owner of the park, said: “Business confidence seems to be on the up and we are seeing a rise in businesses which are taking the giant step from home-based remote working to joining their team together and renting space.”

Ten more offices and suites are also expected to be ready in spring 2013.
