Ramparts gets enterprise zone status
The Ramparts Business Park in Berwick formally became part of the newly-expanded North East Enterprise Zone on April 1.
The enterprise zone will offer benefits to businesses wishing to grow or locate in Berwick, including up to five years business rates relief for those establishing operations within the enterprise zone footprint.
In December, Northumberland’s development company, Arch, acquired 2,509 sq m of offices and 1.2 hectares of development land at Ramparts from the previous owner, Gladmans.
This recent investment will help create new development opportunities in Berwick, providing a platform for additional commercial floor space and the creation of around 100 new jobs for the local area.
