Be Central Bedfordshire
Be Central Bedfordshire is a new Inward Investment brand delivered by Central Bedfordshire Council. Central Bedfordshire Council is a unitary authority serving a growing population of around 260,000. The area is located at the heart of the motorway network with excellent rail and air links- less than 30 minutes from London.
The Council required an online business and inward investment portal to promote the new brand and position Central Bedfordshire as an exciting place to invest , work and live. As part of this, a firm requirement for the new portal was the functionality for website visitors to undertake commercial property and land searches, producing exact property results from within the Central Bedfordshire Council boundary.
A visually attractive, vibrant and engaging online platform was proposed to effectively promote, reflect and deliver the Be Central Bedfordshire brand.
Alcium Software were commissioned to design and develop the website, which allows visitors, potential investors and business intermediaries to find information and details of local, regional and national business support services. The new online portal also enables users to extensively search for available land and commercial property in Central Bedfordshire, as well as undertake a key developments search via the use of an interactive map and search facility. The new website is completely responsive, ensuring the site communicates effectively and consistently across desktop, tablet and mobile devices.
