Vision and Proposition

Dorset Innovation Park Enterprise Zone vision is themed upon developing a site for advanced engineering and manufacturing businesses. The target sectors for the enterprise zone are:

  • Advanced engineering and manufacturing
  • Defence
  • Marine
  • Energy
  • Cyber security

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.

The 56 hectare (138 acres) site offers strategic employment development opportunities within a campus setting.

Plans are in place to produce a Local Development Order (LDO) which clarify the parameters for development and simplify the process of obtaining planning consent for development.

Dorset Innovation Park is a secure site with gatehouse security at the main entrance. Access is available on a 24 hr basis. 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.
