A VISION of how part of Hereford's Enterprise Zone could look has been depicted in a new image.

The image shows how the North Magazine area at Skylon Park in Rotherwas could be developed by businesses - Greenway bridge can be seen in the background.

The 10 hectare development plot to the north of the Straight Mile is currently vacant although a new access road has been completed.

The first two developments, Skylon Court which is in Skylon East, and Skylon Place, within the South Magazine area, have both been completed and all the units are let.

The investment opportunities at the park in Hereford will be highlighted at four-day real estate exhibition, conference and networking event in Cannes called MIPIM.

Promoting the region as “one of the best places in the UK to invest, live work and play’, the Marches Local Enterprise Partnership has worked with partners, including Herefordshire Council and the Enterprise Zone team, to develop an "exciting proposition for investors."

Enterprise Zone chairman Andrew Manning Cox said: "We are delighted that opportunities at Skylon Park have been selected to be showcased as part of the Midlands Engine Investment Portfolio at MIPIM.

“Skylon North Magazine, a 10 hectare development plot benefitting from dedicated access and full land remediation, and Skylon South are premier development locations on the park and are conducive to larger scale commercial development opportunities for investors, with particular interest in defence, security and advanced manufacturing.”

The new cyber security centre will be positioned in the area south of the Straight Mile.

LEP chairman Graham Wynn will join Midlands Engine chairman Sir John Peace and other LEP and local authority leaders in Cannes during MIPIM which is held from March 13 to 16.

Mr Wynn said: “The Marches is one of the best places in the UK to invest, live, work and play. We have fantastic investment opportunities in our region, one of the most attractive locations in the UK to live and work. Global players including BAE Systems, Caterpillar, and Heineken have already chosen to base their operations here, where we offer a first-class business landscape and an outstanding quality of life.”
