The Cornwall and Isles of Scilly Local Enterprise Partnership has launched the Aerohub Enterprise Zone at Newquay Cornwall Airport. The massive 861 acre site, which was once RAF St Mawgan, a major diversion airfield, includes a 2744m runway. It is exhibiting at Farnborough Hall 1 B17
The Enterprise Zones (EZ) are specific areas where a combination of financial incentives, reduced planning restrictions and other support is used to encourage the creation of new businesses and jobs – and contribute to the growth of the local and national economies.
The Newquay project is thought to be only the second EZ in the country with access to a fully licensed commercial airport. As well as scheduled services the airport has full facilities for business jets, including long haul.
The EZ management says that besides the economic considerations companies coming to Newquay will be able to call upon the skills and expertise of an established workforce keen to demonstrate their knowledge and skills in advanced technology. Aerospace is considered the most likely area for future growth, Augusta Westland typical and already established at the airport. British International Helicopters has recently moved in with a base and line maintenance operation. Cornwall itself is an attraction with a quality of life somewhat different from any crowded metropolis. www.cornwallandislesofscillylep.com
