Skylon Park in Hereford is the designated Enterprise Zone of the Marches LEP. 

With a unique defence and security sector focus, building on Hereford’s association with UK special forces as the home of the SAS, it offers a high-quality business space in a parkland setting.

The 110 acre site has undergone a multi-million investment in infrastructure, including site clearing, road building and the introduction of superfast broadband.

Companies are invited to create their own place within the Masterplan of Skylon Park, giving flexibility for a space which best suits their operations in a central UK and European location. It is also within an hour and half drive of the international airports at Birmingham, Bristol and Cardiff.  The site already benefits from the Rotherwas access road, giving the estate quick and easy access to the A49, M50 and the rest of the motorway network.

The Enterprise Zone Board is chaired by lawyer, Andrew Manning Cox. Having established the framework to take the work of the Zone forward, the Board is now focused on bringing the right sort of private sector investment.

To date, 38 companies are now occupying their new premises on Skylon Park and Skylon North Magazine and Skylon South are now being offered as premier development locations on the Enterprise Zone, conducive to larger scale commercial development opportunities for investors, with particular interest in defence, security and advanced manufacturing.

Two major new projects for 2019 are the Shell Store Incubation Centre and the Cyber Quarter – Midlands Centre for Cyber Security.

The Shell Store project is being funded by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF), Herefordshire Council and a £2.498m loan from the Marches LEP’s Marches Investment Fund.
