A garden firm has relocated from Buckingham to Westcott Venture Park due to the enhanced security the site offers.

Green Retreats managing director Roy Weatherall has ambitious plans for the business, which designs and manufactures garden rooms, as seen on Channel 4.

Fifty staff have relocated to Westcott and plans include recruiting up to 40 new recruits and doubling turnover within five years.

Mr Weatherall said: “Westcott is the perfect location for our staff and business.

“A big draw for us moving to Westcott, aside from its rural location, proximity for staff and three times the amount of internal space, was in fact the security.

“We have previously experienced problems with attempted and successful robberies, so the 24-hour security protection and nine-mile perimeter security fencing is a big advantage compared to other business parks.”
