A new master-plan for a 62-acre site at Ashwood Business Park in Northumberland was unveiled at Advanced Engineering 2019
, which was held at the NEC in Birmingham at the end of last month.
The next phase in the site’s development — spearheaded by Advance Northumberland (www.advancenorthumberland.co.uk
) on behalf of Northumberland County Council — is set to make the park a centre for advanced manufacturing, process and engineering companies, and a catalyst for further industrial growth in the region.
Ashwood Business Park has Enterprise Zone status, which means that organisations locating there can benefit from 10% Enhanced Capital Allowances.
Plots from 50,000ft2
are available, and the tenure options range from a freehold sale to a short-term lease.
The park is already home to a major AzkoNobel paint-processing facility — costing more than £100 million and opened in 2017.
Advance Northumberland chairman Richard Wearmouth said: “We were delighted to launch the new master-plan for Ashwood Business Park at Advanced Engineering.
"The park offers a fantastic opportunity for businesses working in manufacturing, engineering and the process sector to take advantage of a superb location with excellent transport links.”
