Ryde Nicholson Road

Nicholson Road is land right next to the existing Ryde Business Park. This land is owned by the council and is bordered by the Business Park to the north, Great Preston Road to the east, Smallbrook Lane to the south and the railway line to the west.

The council is working to use this land to regenerate jobs and businesses in Ryde.

You can find out more detail about the proposals on this page. The display board archives show the information that was presented at the August 2019 community consultation event. If you couldn’t come, it’s not too late to let us know your views – just get in touch.
