/ Enterprise Zone
07 Jun 2011
The Sheffield City Region Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) has recently selected a proposed Enterprise Zone, which will be based on the advanced engineering and technology sectors that the region specialises in. It is hoped that it will comprise of a core technology, innovation and manufacturing zone based around the existing Advanced Manufacturing Park at Waverley. Although the Park is no longer in the Rother Valley constituency, its impact and influence continues to be of enormous benefit to our area.
Proposals for such a Zone, linked to the M1 Corridor, will be finalised shortly with the LEP Board, who will then submit its proposal to the Government for approval. The Government expects these Enterprise Zones to be operational by April 2012.
