Hillhouse International Enterprise Zone

About

Hillhouse International Enterprise Zone is a former chemical production facility, located on the Wyre coast at Thornton-Cleveleys. It is one of the Lancashire Enterprise Partnership's (LEP) priorities to tranform the economy of the county and wider region.

It is a 138 hectare site occupied by over 40 companies, including three world class multi-national businesses namely Victrex PLC (polymers), AGC Chemicals Europe Ltd (flurochemicals and fluropolymers), and Vinnolit (PVC manufacture).

There are areas of land within the enterprise zone availiable for re-development, including areas within the secure part of the site.

Businesses could receive benefits including business rates relief for five years or enhanced capital allowances.

Hillhouse International Enterprise Zone provides a fantastic opportunity for business to locate on an existing, internationally-recognised business park, alongside world-leading chemical and polymer production companies.

Target sectors include the chemical industry, polymer manufacture, energy generation and management, advanced manufacturing and engineering, and low carbon and sustainable industries. However, principal driver behind the enterprise zone, is job creation and industry diversification, so companies looking to operate outside those target sectors will be welcomed to discuss options.
