Renowned for its advanced technology, innovation, and entrepreneurism, Derby is a city with huge potential, and whose central university has one of the highest graduate retention rates in the country. At the heart of this ambitious city is Derby’s Cathedral Quarter.
With a rich history complemented by the highest quality developments, the Cathedral Quarter combines old and new beautifully – retaining its character and unique atmosphere whilst serving as the central business district of Derby.
There are more than 500 highly-respected and established local, regional and national businesses in the Cathedral Quarter, with the professional services sector accounting for 32 per cent of those.
These businesses benefit from being part of an established Business Improvement District (BID) with innovative projects to maximise the area’s commercial potential, beautiful surroundings and fantastic lifestyle.
Businesses in the area recognise that the Cathedral Quarter is an address which carries kudos and value, with a reputation for quality and credibility.
Martin Langsdale, chair of the Cathedral Quarter Board, which spearheads activities under the area’s BID programme, said, “Professional services are the largest sector in the Cathedral Quarter and are crucial to the ongoing success and vibrancy of the area.
“Not only do they provide high quality services that are crucial to the economic well-being of the city and beyond, the staff they employ are valued customers of other business in the city centre from retailers to coffee shops.
