A FORMER Barclays bank, located in a popular neighbourhood retail parade on St Christopher Road, St Johns, Colchester, has been let to Greggs. Adjacent occupiers include Tesco Express, Lloyds Bank, Day Lewis Pharmacy, Martins Newsagents and Ladbrokes.

Michael Moody, associate director of Newman Commercial, who handled the letting on behalf of the landlord, said: “The property received substantial attention but terms were very swiftly agreed with Greggs and solicitors were instructed before Barclays had vacated.”

Newman Commercial has also completed the letting of a 7,300 sq. ft (678 m²) warehouse unit, at the Caxton Court development on Severalls Industrial Park to Distinctive Wholesale Ltd. They join DHL, who moved to the site earlier in the year.
