Our track record of generating income for the business is highlighted by our strong portfolio of business parks, low-carbon energy schemes and directly developed commercial units that we have recently built ourselves for long-term lease on some of our sites.
Our income-producing assets make up nearly 40% of our property portfolio and we adopt proven asset management techniques through our in-house Business Space and Natural Resources teams. These assets include over 15 business parks and development sites where we receive both rent and service charges from existing industrial units and directly developed commercial units.
Much of our land portfolio also lends itself to low-carbon energy production, being located at sites without good transport access but having significant former grid connections arising from the previous use of land. Such schemes include solar, wind, AD, gas, STOR and battery storage.
With over several thousand acres of agricultural land in our portfolio, our Natural Resources team are currently leasing this land to over 200 farming tenants across our core regions for various farming activities. In addition to farm tenancies, this also includes agricultural-related residential properties and a number of fishing and shooting licences.
