Rent-a-desk initiative to go live in Wincanton

A new initiative for people wanting flexible office accommodation in Wincanton is being launched this month by South Somerset District Council (SSDC). 

Ideally suited to smaller home based businesses or those who have the occasional need for an office but do not wish to be bound by a lease, a hot desk space in the Lime Room at SSDC's Churchfield offices could be the answer.

If you work from home, the Lime Room provides two desk spaces to enable you to work without the distraction of home life. Bring your laptop, mobile phone and just get going. Printer and Wifi access connection (typical speeds: download 16.08mbps, Upload 11.16mbps) is included within our flexible hourly bookings. 

For regional staff of companies that are on the road and are working from their car as they travel around the south-west, this is a convenient 'pit stop' situated just off the A303. 

Councillor Nick Weeks, Chairman of south Somerset District Council's Area East Committee commented, "We are keen to support businesses locally and we hear that more and more home based businesses are seeking flexible office accommodation, from which to build their business, without being tied into long leases.

"This initiative is being implemented on an experimental basis; it is a win - win situation; an opportunity to test demand using vacant office space at the Council Offices in Churchfield, Wincanton and if successful,  it may provide the basis from which to develop a work hub locally. I would encourage potential users to contact us to book a free taster session"

A photocopier and meeting rooms are also available for use although separate charges will be applied.

If you are interested in renting a space in the Lime Room in Wincanton, please call Terena or Jackie in our Area Development Team on 01963 435004.
