Dorset Innovation Park Enterprise Zone is an advanced engineering cluster of excellence for the South West, building on strengths in marine, defence and energy.

A single site accommodating 50 hectares of land, of which 35 hectares is developable, it is the second largest strategic employment site in the Dorset LEP area.

Centrally situated within south Dorset, approximately one mile to the west of Wool, the site lies at the intersection of the burgeoning aerospace, marine, defence and energy clusters. It offers a secure facility and the presence of two world leaders in defence technology - Atlas Elektronik and QinetiQ.

The site is being recognised as a major focus for the economic regeneration of South Dorset. A vital stimulus for employment, it is expected to facilitate 2,000 new jobs and attract dozens of new businesses to the area. Businesses who locate to the site will be able to benefit from up to five years of business rate reductions and access to ultrafast broadband.
