Industrial parks advertised online

A website dedicated to the sale of plots on industrial estates across the Algarve is to be set up by the regional development commission (CCDR) to stimulate new business opportunities in hard economic times.

This online project, called Algarve Acolhe, will include useful information about the industrial parks to help prospective buyers, such as its proximity to other infrastructures like railways and main roads, the prices per square metre and contact details.

Users of the website will also be able to view updated information about individual plots at the parks and whether they have been sold, let or are vacant, which João Faria, President of the CCDR hopes will stimulate some competition for plots.

He added that the website, which should be ready later this year, could be a useful tool for businesses located along the EN125 that may want to relocate because of development or because of by-passes that will “steal” potential clients.
