At Quorum Business Park we want to create a pleasant and sustainable environment where people, animals, plants and businesses thrive. To achieve this aim we make sure sustainability and the environment are given a central role.

Quorum Business Park has been carefully designed to attract and nurture wildlife. There is a wildlife corridor running though the centre of the park and 500 trees line the Avenue.wildlife-map-image

There is a variety of wildlife on the park including, apple trees, birds, animals, insects and rabbits.
