Dixcart makes substantial investment in Surrey, Council leader makes transport plea

The Surrey business sector received a substantial boost this month, as Dixcart International struck a new deal to acquire the Ocean House office building in Weybridge.

Dixcart are one of the world’s leading professional advisers and currently hold properties in many locations around the world. Some of their offices in addition to the UK can be found in South Africa, Portugal, Cyprus, Malta and Switzerland.

Their new property comprises 8,504 sq ft of office space, and will be completely occupied by the prestigious company. Dixcart is relocating from their previous property in Esher.

Speaking on behalf of the firm’s real estate agent, Rob Pearson said:

“This deal suggests a continued confidence in the occupier market despite recent uncertainty, demand continues to remain high across the region and we expect to see activity remain buoyant going forward.”

In other news, Surrey’s County Council leader has pleaded for the disruption on the Southern rail network to be tackled as a matter of urgency, fearing the negative impact it may have on commuters to and from the area.

Cllr David Hodge said:

“As a Southern passenger myself, I fully understand the anger being vented by Surrey’s passengers and businesses. Like them, I have suffered travel misery over the past few weeks and this situation simply can’t continue – all those involved need to put their heads together to get services back on track.”

“Not only is it causing distress on the daily commute for workers and the many thousands of residents who rely on the network for essential journeys, it is hurting our businesses and damaging the powerhouse economies of Surrey, London and the South East.”
