Ford main dealer Fordthorne has purchased the 16,300 sq ft former TB Davies industrial building on Penarth Road, Cardiff, advised by Cooke & Arkwright. The detached industrial warehouse unit occupies a half-acre site near to Fordthorne's main car showroom premises on Penarth Road.

The new unit will be adapted and refurbished to create a commercial vehicle showroom and workshops. TB Davies, advised by Knight Frank, has invested in new premises in Cardiff Bay. Jeremy Symons who advised Fordthorne comments, “Fordthorne is creating a new Transit Centre Showroom and workshop, and creating an additional 15 jobs.”

Cooke & Arkwright have been providing Newport City Council with rating advice for over 20 years. Andrew, Jane and Huw provide a personal and professional service and have an excellent knowledge of the Council’s assets which has enabled the Council to achieve substantial rate savings. A useful service offered is the status report which provides us with a snapshot of what appeals have been made and appeals outstanding throughout the life of the List. I would recommend Cooke & Arkwright Rating Services to any company wishing to procure up-to-date and professional rating advice.
