About Us

Cater Business Park is a vibrant South Bristol location providing a base for a variety of businesses. It is a mixed ownership Park comprising both owner/occupier business units and tenant occupied business units and enjoys a high occupancy rate. It has the benefit of good organization, where businesses have an input into the future development of the Business Park. The Park is situated in a prominent position with good access links in an active regeneration area of the City of Bristol that has undergone significant public and private investment over a range of capital building/development projects, new schools, hospital, housing, leisure and business units, culminating in the opening of the South Bristol Link in January 2017.
