As we start 2021 we are not only delighted to report that we continue to stay open for our tenants and businesses but that we have welcomed several new tenants in the last couple of months…

Property investment experts Aspen Woolf, property maintenance company Bricknell Build and online marketplace for parents Babychum, all chose to make a business base at the Ongar Business Centre in January 2021.


This follows the trend set at the end of 2020 when management consultancy Blackmore Four, care company Lavender Grove Cares, pharma analytics company Allott Limited & taxi insurance specialists Sutherland Insurance all joined the centre.

About the centre

Managed by the Let’s Do Business Group (LDBG), the Ongar Business Centre (OBC) has been providing business solutions to a large variety of SMEs for many years but with the COVID-19 restrictions and predominance of remote working many businesses have had to reassess their businesses. OBC has already welcomed several businesses from London, many of which are looking to reduce office and travel costs.


That attraction looks likely to increase with businesses now planning for a post COVID-19 hybrid working model where employees spread their work between home and an office. Situated within the M11 & M25 corridor, the Ongar Business Centre provides easy access to areas such as Epping, Brentwood, Harlow and Chelmsford. OBC also offers ample car parking providing another potential benefit for employers not wishing to subject staff, who have got used to being local, to long commutes.

Virtual tenancy at Ongar Business Centre

Taking up residency at OBC as a virtual tenant is another option, helping to achieve maximum professionalism without the costs involved in securing office space.


A virtual office allows you to rent out a selection of services which can be accessed while working from home (or wherever you choose to work). Key services as part of your tenancy include a postal address assigned to your business and a mail handling service.

“I currently work from home, so I don’t need to rent an office. It’s great that I can have my business post delivered to the centre and hire a meeting room, when required, so that I can meet in a professional space with my clients.”
