Enterprise Zone

The former Pfizer site has been declared an enterprise zone - it is hoped designating the area as an enterprise zone will help revive jobs and bring confidence back to the area after the announcement Pfzier was to close.

Today the government announced locations for new "enterprise zones" in England to try to boost economic growth - with one of them being the Pfizer site. It is hoped from these zones,  30,000 new jobs will be created by 2015 by giving cheaper business rates, superfast broadband and lower levels of planning control.

The Chancellor George Osborne who came to the Pfizer site to make the announcement said: "I know how bleak it seemed a few months ago. I hope we can begin to see the rays of a brighter future."

We need to build the growth economy, to make Britain richer and more successful once more – and this Enterprise Zone package for Discovery Park will do just that.
