As the existing industrial zone continues to expand to undeveloped vacant land, there are 20 ha of rehabilitated land for development in the TRIS-Kanižarica Business Park, southwest of Črnomelj, in the vicinity of the border with Croatia and close to major transportation arteries. As many as 25 enterprises with some 220 employees already operate in the business park.
The TRIS-Kanižarica Business Park consists of a number of plots, measuring from 2,000 sq m to 10,000 sq m to be offered at competitive prices starting at 9 euro. The land for development would suit numbers of uses but the planning permission envisages low to medium impact industry. Light industrial use land uses include manufacturing and assembly Light industry includes warehousing, and manufacturing involving the assemblage of pre-manufactured parts. Complementary land uses comprise related office space and a commercial zone where services and retail facilities will be located. Production plants have been constructed on the rest of the site. Individual plots can be combined to get the desired floor area to meet investors’ needs. The total area of the Business Park is 106 hectares, of which some 25 hectares have been developed and 45 hectares are available for development. The size of all newly constructed buildings is rather large both by layout and by height, and they are suited to office use and for manufacturing. The surroundings are landscaped. At the entrance into the Business Park, there is a parking area for trucks. Other parking places have been provided at each plot. Internal driveways and connection paths are paved. The Park has infrastructure in place. There is a water-supply network, separate sewage system, power supply, telecommunications and gas network, as well as public lighting. Utility, power, and telecommunications cables are laid in ducts along the road network. Municipal waste service is organised. The soil on which the Business Park stands is stable and not subject to flooding, so construction works will be safe and fast.
Key advantages of the project
The brownfield industrial site TRIS Kanižarica is close to the railway line Novo mesto – Crnomelj – Karlovac (Croatia). The industrial land development is situated 35 km from the junction to the Slovenian motorway and 40 km from the junction to the Croatian motorway. The international airports serving Ljubljana and Zagreb (Croatia) are some 100 km away. The cargo and passenger ports at Koper, Trieste and Rijeka are easily reached. The construction of the so-called third development axis has been pencilled in the national motorway construction programme as the backbone connecting regional centres in Austria, Slovenia and Croatia, and linking road transport to the European transport corridors. The Slovenian government has already announced its plan to lease out the operation of its motorways and find an appropriate investor for the construction of a motorway on the so-called third development axis – a clear benefit for the tenants of the TRIS Kanižarica.
Investors are invited to purchase the land for development or vacant business premises or set up their own production facilities to participate in the project (greenfield and brownfield). A variety of possibilities is available to the investors within the business park: construction of new premises or building an extension to the existing ones, reconstruction and removal of facilities, change in the intended purpose of use (for part of the building or for the whole building), landscaping of open public and semi-public spaces. Investors will have to obtain the construction permit for each investment. A wide range of renewable energy sources (wood biomass, solar, water and geothermal energy) and easily accessible quality labour force are also available to investors. The TRIS Kanižarica is situated in the Kolpa River Valley (Pokolpje). In 2011, the Slovenian government adopted the programme Pokolpje with seven development measures, five of which should strengthen and develop entrepreneurship.
