Nottingham and Derby Enterprise Zone

Innovation Centre Infinity Park

Enterprise Zones are designated areas across England that provide tax breaks and Government support. They are great places to do business, especially for both new and expanding firms.

The Nottingham and Derby Enterprise Zone offers a range of opportunities for growing businesses and is spread across four sites with three in Nottingham and one in Derby.

Infinity Park in Derby

Infinity Park is a £200m, 250-acre commercial and technology park, located south of Derby city centre alongside the A50.

It is eventually hoped the Park will provide 1.5million square feet of business space and accommodate up to 8,000 jobs, focused around hi-tech and knowledge industries.

The Park's first building - the £11.8m iHub Innovation Centre opened in July 2016 and is now fully occupied. 

It is the headquarters for Enscite, a support organisation for companies in the transport engineering supply chain.

Beeston Business Park

Beeston Business Park aims to be the home of technology and ICT for the future. 

Located close to its sister Enterprise Zone site at Alliance Boots, Beeston Business Park is a new development currently undergoing £40million of investment. 

Providing a range of office space and industrial units from 100 to 900,000 square feet, the site is located along the main railway line connecting Nottingham to London, Birmingham, and Manchester.

Businesses already located here include Siemens, SMS Technologies, Go Daddy, and ATOS, making it a strong location for ICT and technology led-businesses.

Boots Site

The Boots site consists of 279 acres (113 hectares) which form a UK centre for innovation in health beauty and wellness in Nottingham.

The site offers a cost-effective, high quality, centrally located site for health and wellness businesses such as business incubators, start-ups and small and medium enterprises.

As well as existing buildings suitable for redevelopment, the site also includes around 100 acres (40 hectares) of brownfield land suitable for development. Life sciences 'hub' MediCity is located on the Boots site.

In March 2019, a series of works part-funded by D2N2 was completed to improve accessibility to the site and to encourage the use of cycling as a means of travel.

Nottingham Science Park

Nottingham Science Park is located opposite the University of Nottingham and working closely with its world-leading research base, Nottingham Science Park is an award-winning sustainably designed science park. 

With design and build opportunities from 20,000 sq ft upwards, and a direct link on the tram network connected to the city centre and the transport hub of Nottingham, the site is ideally suited for businesses looking to ramp up their research and development. 

Recently, D2N2 has invested £5million into the development of the Elizabeth Garrett Anderson building, due to be completed in 2020. The facility will spearhead new research into medical technologies.
